By implication does this imply:
-- TWC is contemplating launching programming packages in which it passes on all wholesale network licensing fees directly to its subscribers and only requires a small monthly maintenance fee to insure valued service.
-- TWC is planning to evolve its subscription model to compete with over-the-top services like Roku and the futuristic Intel, Google TV and Apple TV by dropping its current subscription package model, and in the future, will only require subscribers to purchase hardware – a cloudy set top box like utility – to access programming.
-- TWC is quietly contemplating investing in Aereo, Dish’s Hopper DVR and/or any other copyright expansive defining service.
-- TWC could offer an à la carte channel proposition for any of the channels it carries on its platform, if so desired
Whether this gambit is an “empty gesture” and a “sham” designed to distract from the fact that TWC “is not negotiating in good faith,” as Moonves contends, has Time Warner Cable, in fact, cross-addressed, without meaning to, issues that have been on the minds of media pundits and consumers alike and subtly provided an answer to this long awaited à la carte question.
