Let us assess the situation may we?
NFL Sunday Ticket - the loss-leader black ho-e of 1.8 to 2.0 billion we use to suck in the gullible sofa warriors - that goes away as early as the end of this season and definitely by next year once either Apple or Amazon scoops it up. So bye bye to the 2 million subscribers that fall for this scam. Maybe we keep commercial accounts - but I'm seeing more bars going to streaming setups in preparation for our fall from football grace.,
Technology - we are still shilling the 8 year old Genie system that shows it age the second we activate the poor 5 or 6 times refurbed POS. We feel lucky if the thing doesn't crash with a hard drive error in the middle of the Customer Education demo.
Customers ask do we have a talking remote? Sure - you CAN talk to it - but it doesn't listen to what you say. Ha Ha - joke is on you!
Can we run multiple streams - nope only 3 clients at a time, sorry you have 7 TVs. But for 200 hundred dollars more, I can upgrade you to a mere 3 times refurbed Genie 2 - woohoo! More streams if you don't mind the weekly system crashes!
Can I stream apps - sorry no can do unless you count the weather bug and the equally useless score card thingy.
But hey, wasn't 2013 a super cool year for you? We think so - that's why we stopped developing in that year!
Our job these days is to convince modern 2021 tech savvy people that there is still value in horses and buggies as long as you have the hay to pay and are willing to settle for the level of tech that your grandma uses.
On the upside, we still have roughly 11 million losers (I mean valued customers) who pay their bills each month. So until they wise up and bail - I still get paid so there is that!
