Enterprises TV notes that more people than ever before have begun to “cut the cord” with cable TV, that is, ditch expensive cable services in favor of finding the entertainment they want online. Huge, monopolistic cable companies have not been winning friends over the last few decades, with abusive policies and a cavalier attitude toward customers. They have repeatedly removed favorite channels from the lineup, transferring them to higher-priced tiers. They play incessant billing games, with the fees that creep upward each month. They definitely don’t reward customer loyalty — quite the reverse. For years, consumers have asked for a cafeteria model for television viewing — let me subscribe to the channels I want and without being forced to support channels I would never visit. Whether its news, sports, comedy, religion or programming in various languages, every genre has its fans and also those who don’t want to watch any of it.
Enterprises TV is watching with interest, the exodus of cable customers to other sources for their viewing pleasure.
The Enterprises TV show acknowledges that viewers can always settle on the local channels coming in over the airwaves. In large urban centers, that offers plenty of choices. For those who have become addicted to the unique offerings from fee-charging networks, that doesn’t completely satisfy the appetite for bold, innovative storytelling. Some of that is available from online sources like Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime, iTunes and Google Play. There is even technology available for projecting internet-fed programming to your huge, hi-def TV screen, the most popular being Roku and Apple TV. But the premium pay-networks do offer original fare that is so good, they tend to dominate the awards ceremonies each year. As many around the country try valiantly to get off the grid, some are starting the process at their television sets.
