WHY CABLE IS DOOMED This is hardly the only reason, just another in a long series of reasons. When you provide telecommunications services and your company cannot adequately communicate internally, people begin to question your capacity to function.  It would be like Dell taking orders by phone and fax, but not online for their PCs. The hassles I went through trying to get AT&T Uverse set up when I lived in Stamford, because the website, the stores and the phone support all had different ideas of whether the services was available where I lived.  So it is not a cable only problem. But it is bound to increase cord cutting as time progresses.
