Yet there were other major constituencies looking to make a mark at the show, including major cable operators who came to the show with M&A on the top of their minds. In fact, this discussion boiled over into one of the most transparent, awkward and downright entertaining show keynote panels full of top cable CEOs as you’re ever likely to see.
