    Whoopsies.

    Lyft accidentally said 500bps of ebita margin expansion in 2024 but they meant to say 50bps

    Costco’s new CFO will be the current Kroger CFO, so… that’s probably not going to turn out well.

    And announced a bunch of sequels too...cause everyone is begging for Toy Story 5.

    Now I'm curious if the increase made up for the loss in base.

    Disney+ lost 1.3M subscribers in Q1 2024 after increasing prices
    They've now lost subscribers in 4/5 of the past quarters

    Comcast used to collectively bargain on our behalf to keep prices low. It was great.

    Now they own the camera lens to the television screen. It's bad.

    You know, "living in their Mom's basement" isn't the insult it used to be.
    It means they made a sound financial decision and should be praised.

    Well Xfinity is different anyways...since Comcast/Universal already has a streaming service in Peacock. I have no idea about what other cable outlets their are anymore but I can't imagine they have the reach Comcast does or the adaptability.

    The Cable Co's are just going to become service providers anyway. Probably a hell of a lot cheaper for 'em to as they won't have to pay those networks to carry those channels.

    They'll make mint freeing up the broadcast bandwidth on cable and turning around and offering that bandwidth as "Turbo 20G speed!" that you have to pay for as a premium extra on top your existing internet package.

    And, as a way to smooth over the number of people who hop from streaming service to service to save a few bucks, the Cable Co's will likely start offering these streaming packages as bundles themselves:

    "Get Xfinity 20G service with Peacock Basic free! Add Netflix basic and the Disney Bundle w/ads for just $25 a month! Want to stream commercial free? Upgrade to Xfinity Ad Free for $25 month!"

    It does seem that way...also desperation.

    Comcast agrees with this post.

    I can’t see paying $50 a month or whatever it will cost. It’s really going to suck whenever cable goes away. It may be overpriced but I think it was a lot better than whatever comes after it.

    ESPN, ESPN2, ESPNU, SECN, ACCN, ESPNEWS, ABC, FOX, FS1, FS2, BTN, TNT, TBS, truTV, as well as ESPN+.

    That’s a pretty good lineup. Only missing CBSSN, USA, Paramount and Peacock. (And CBS and NBC, but those are OTA). But yeah, I will be interested to see the price. Even if you took the cable carrier cost that would be a lot, let alone with what’s basically a la carte for sports.
