The digital tea leaves

Put these two together:

HBO to launch standalone streaming service in 2015

CBS follows on HBO’s heels with launch of web-only streaming service

You notice there’s first a premium cable station and a broadcast going the same way. The dominos are at the very least moving. I think this puts ABC’s ESPN properties in the sweet spot with a great deal of power in the remaining deals. They already have digital solutions, good ones, have never been afraid to try things and are always the “but” behind the “I’d drop cable,” argument.
