CNBC: The future of cable may be no TV at all, but the murky industry of streaming video and bundled TV is not that simple

Almost every large media company has a direct-to-consumer TV streaming service that might negate the need for bundles of channels. Video revenue is declining, but today streaming is still not reliable enough to replace regular Cable TV — especially for live news.

This article seems be hyped up. While the author might be on to something, streaming will have to be much more reliable before bundled traditional TV becomes extinct. Multiple log-ins to a variety of streaming services is a major pain, especially when a service you think should be logged in, suddenly asks for a password and verification. X-1 with a voice-controlled remote is a much better solution than a patchwork of online service.
