More on virtual TV (previous): Though he forecasts a move away from cable TV subscriptions to web-based options by consumers, BTIG analyst Rich Greenfield doesn't think cable companies will die a quick death. Margins on broadband are better than in the TV business, and an increased interest in streaming video could see more customers opt for upgrades to their broadband service. CMCSA, TWX, CHTR, CVC.

    What cable companies charge for their plethora of mostly useless channels is criminal. The customers NEED some competition in this space!

    I was paying a fortune monthly to Time Warner NYC for Internet access, VoIP, and premium high def TV. By switching to Vonage for VoIP (which now includes free international calling to most countries; my wife is from Peru so I've saved a bundle right there; also, TWC VoIP had latency issues and could not cover most of the US because it lacked arrangements with other carriers) and Roku with an ASUS dual band wireless router, I have access to thousands of Internet programs, almost all of them free; plus I own the inexpensive equipment rather than renting via TWC) and saved another $100/mo.
