Scale Getting Tougher To Achieve For Independent Groups

By | Subchannel Report


The past couple of years we have seen a tremendous amount of consolidation as the independent groups have swallowed up other groups in an effort to reach a bigger national footprint. Time will tell whether or not a larger footprint, mirroring a national or regional cable network, will help groups compete on both a regional basis as well as targeted advertising into markets. With the cable industry also consolidating the race is on to build out the advertising zones. May the man, or woman, with the best content win.
