Indeed, transactional VOD revenue fell $7 million across both Hollywood movies and adult content, according CFO Irene Esteves. Premium channel revenue was down $12 million from Q3 last year and accounted for most of the decline.

Netflix and Redbox strike again! Imagine that Hollywood... Consumers don't want to pay $4-8+ to rent a crappy remake or another sequel...

Time Warner Cable Posts VOD Decline

No. 2 cable operator reports third-quarter drop in premium channel subscribers and transactional video-on-demand movies

Time Warner Cable Oct. 27 said it lost 128,000 video subscribers during the third quarter (ended Sept. 30) as the economy and entertainment alternatives continue to undermine multichannel video distributors’ sub bases.

The No. 2 cable operator ended the quarter with 11.9 million video subscribers compared with 12 million at the end of the second quarter (ended June 30). TWC said the drop included fewer subscribers to premium channels and a decline in transactional VOD movie rentals — the first time Hollywood’s preferred rental format (over discs) has been singled out.


Indeed, transactional VOD revenue fell $7 million across both Hollywood movies and adult content, according CFO Irene Esteves. Premium channel revenue was down $12 million from Q3 last year and accounted for most of the decline.

In an analyst call, CEO Glenn Britt said declines in transactional VOD were impacted by a dearth of bigger box office hits and over-the-top video distributors such as Netflix.

“It may well be some impact from the over-the-top, so called over-the-top services … but nobody that I know has been able to measure it yet,” Britt said.

There was a time when Netflix unequivocally stated they were NOT in the business of competing with cable/sat operators. With the recent coup of "House of Cards" and "Arrested Development" (still in talks), and the hiring of a new exec for original content acquisition, that time has passed.
