Re: What they Want
I'd go one step further and say that it's not only here to stay but it will only continue to get more popular. As a writer, it sometimes scares me that people are becoming so addicted to video that my craft will die out.

Re: Wise Decision
I just switched from them for that exact reason. I was paying for 40mbps and getting 12. The service starting to randomly cut out on me was the straw that broke the camel's back.

Re: What they Want
@dcawrey - I agree. I don't really see how they can just stop offering video altogether. I would think that would be suicide for any company. No matter how it's seen, very few customers would have any interest in ditching video altogether. Especially with Facebook adding Facebook Live and what not. Video is not only necessary but it's here to stay.

Re: What they Want
I don't think it is really possible for service providers to just stop with their video offerings. It might be a pass to provide, but it brings in customers for sure. It's like a gateway to other services!

What they Want
Century Link gets it. They asked customers what they wanted and found a way to proivde it to them even though they don't offer the service internally. This is how all companies should operate. Customer value and customer focus is key.

Re: CenturyLink​ with video
@clrmoney. I agree. Century Links saw an opportunity to increase revenue as well as provide more values to customers. They are not used focus on profit but also concerned about meeting their customers needs. This is how all companies should operate.

Wise Decision
I'm glad to hear Century Link is working on pulling in 4K. Century Link is cheaper, at least where I am, than Comcast. But I don't use it because so many people complain about their speed. Even when I was living with my in-laws for a brief period of time a few years ago, they had Century Link. It was iffy at best more often than not. It just isn't worth it to me to have iffy internet service. But if they are working on changing that, I can definitely see how they're pulling in new customers.

Re: Dipping their bucket where they are
It has to be incredibly hard to make money given all of the aspects of video delivery; and I'm not even talking about competition.

I think it is bright that they are putting VR on the back burner for right now.

Re: Still searching for the killer app
@Adi do you know off the top of your head the percentage of TVs sold under/over 60 inches? In my anecdotal experience, I feel like 60 is usually the smallest being purchased unless the screen is for a specific small space.
