The company, apparently, is opting for the “we’re a neutral platform” defense in the matter, despite the ...

Subscriber churn crushed the pay-TV industry in the third quarter of 2018, delivering the worst quarter on record. Rather than fighting to keep video subscribers, Wall Street analyst Craig Moffe...
