One CEO trying to blow up TV isn’t afraid of Apple, he’s worried about internet companies 19 June 2015

“They have their dominant — in many cases monopolies — in their market for broadband, especially high-speed broadband,” Lynch told us in an interview, adding that it’s actually cheaper sometimes for people to subscribe to TV and broadband from a cable company than just subscribe to broadband.

The cable companies, Lynch said, “concern us because they’re using their dominant position to try to thwart OTT video services.”
