Competition
The Russian market is very competitive. It is great that Petukhov realized this earlier on and found a solution to remain competitive by partnering with other companies. I think collaboration and partnerships are key for all companies no matter what size to ensure both companies remain competitive. Technology is moving so fast that most companies cannot keep up with just their own resources. It also save time, money and resources.

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
@afwriter. Good your for. I have the most basic cable plan. I need to try to figure out how to watch the shows I like and movies on a different platform so I can cut the cord permanently like you did.

Growth
Growth is the key to sustaining any business. As long as the company keeps growing it can remain successful. It is amazing that Petukhov was able to stream 10,000 sports events viewed by over 2.5 million users in just 5 years. That is incredible growth.

"It's not like in the past where you didn't need to change, you could wait years for new technology. Now you cannot allow yourself to be slow. You have to innovate all the time, look at other markets to see what is coming, and always think one to two steps ahead. It's becoming more crucial from year to year."

Working in IT is like a marathon. The faster one to develop a new product or service wins the big prize - the most customers. Everyone else has to fight for the leftover customers.

These are amazing times in the technology world. It is exciting to see so much expansion and growth. I can't even imagine what we will have in just the new 5 years.

Re: More Sevices To Offer
@Dcawrey, you're probably right, but this would be a perfect time for Microsoft to catch back up. The best option would be to see a startup come out of the blue and deliver the experience.

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
@afwriter Well, cable companies are going to have to change their ways ... and fast. Let's start with being honest, and stop ripping off their customers. There's lots of competition out there, and I doubt they are getting much business from the Millennials. That leaves us (or me), the Baby Boomers. And I hate to say this, but we're a dying breed, literally. They need to appease us, not push us away, or they'd better think up a plan to attract the younger crowd.

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
It is funny though, it shows that those practices are not the only reason people are leaving cable because companies like mobile providers and even the garbage company like to sneak in a lot of nonsense "taxes and fees" into their bills.

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
@afwriter  Yes, and the fact that you watch what they put on. The predatory pricing is terrible, not to mention all the taxes and fees. Still trying to figure out why there is an E-911 Fee and a Federal Universal Service Fund. And, oh, here's a good one. There is a "Modem Sales Tax." Why? Am I buying the modem every month?

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
More power to you. I know that there are a lot of factors that go into the price of cable but I'm shocked that they haven't learned yet that price (especially sneaky predatory pricing) is one of the main reasons people don't have cable anymore.

Re: Standalone Services Can't Survive
@afwriter  We've been saying the same thing about print newspapers and magazines, but there they are, still on the stands, and I even ordered a subscription to The New York Times at 75% off for the weekend paper. I keep falling for the same terrible deals all the time. I don't think cable will ever completely disappear. It may make itself skinnier and less obvious, like the way the Sunday Times is, but it will somehow always be lurking in the shadows to see where it can snare another hapless creature.
