The cable industry is going to need to go all-in to stay relevant.
The cable industry has had a hard time staying relevant over the past few years.
The cable companies have all gone belly up.
Comcast and Charter are both in bankruptcy, while the other cable companies are trying to figure out a way to survive.
But the industry is now in a good position.
It is well-capitalized, with a strong consumer base and a solid business model.
It has access to high-speed Internet and the new breed of streaming video services like Netflix.
And it has a strong customer service team, thanks to a slew of high-profile hires.
And now, with Comcast and Time Warner Cable joining forces, the industry seems poised to be in a better place.
This new alliance will give the cable companies the flexibility to build out their networks, to invest in their networks and to offer their customers more choice.
The merger is also a big win for investors.
It means that Comcast and the other two cable companies will have a bigger slice of the broadband pie, allowing them to buy up smaller cable companies, which have historically struggled to get a foothold in the market.
The combined Comcast and TWC will be able to offer cable TV services that rival the most expensive satellite channels.
And the combined cable companies can also offer new services like live streaming video, over-the-top (OTT) video, a new streaming service called DIRECTV Now and more.
The combination will allow the cable giants to offer services like video-on-demand, cable-free movies and sports streams, and cable-only Internet.
And the combined Comcast/Time Warner Cable will also be able offer services that compete with Amazon Prime Video and Netflix, but will cost less than what it will charge for Comcast and its other competitors.
The combined Comcast-Time Warner cable service will also offer more high-quality TV channels, like CNN, ABC and NBC, which will add to the total number of channels available to customers.
The deal is expected to be completed by the end of this year.
Time Warner is now planning to merge with Charter in 2019.
