Streaming Video Up, Live TV Down
According to Nielsen’s second-quarter Total Audience report, the number of homes with pay-TV subscriptions – a crucial number for the industry – is down 1.2% to 100.4 million from 101.6 million a year ago. The number of broadband-only homes rose 52% to 3.3 million from 2.2 million.
Why this matters:
Media company stocks have been slumping recently because investors are concerned that subscription revenues are threatened by cord cutters and skinny bundles. The share of homes with subscription video on demand rose to 45% in the second quarter of 2015 up from 38% in the second quarter a year ago. The number of homes with enabled smart TVs rose to 18% from 11%.

Community TV Studio
The Comcast Community Television studio, located in Chamblee, GA, shut down operations on September 21st. At present, there are no concrete plans for restablishing a production facility for DeKalb County community TV producers.
In recent years, 20 states, including Georgia, have enacted laws allowing cable systems, including AT&T and Verizon, to obtain statewide franchises. These laws have abrogated or phased out public access related provisions in local franchise agreements that requiried franchisees to set aside channels, provide financial support, or provide studio facilities. This law has caused the closing down of community access faci;lities around the country.
We are watching this situation closely and will publish updates as they become available.
Pictured above is the final meeting discussing the closing of the Chamblee facility.
