The Great Un-Cabling

In the world of mobile applications and social networking, a term was coined earlier this year for the splitting up of services into smaller, more focused apps: The Great Unbundling. Foursquare, Google, Facebook and Dropbox are a few of the big dogs who started the trend.
Now it seems we’re seeing something similar happen in the world of television. The Great Un-Cabling, if you will.
HBO is making a handful of its shows available on Amazon’s Prime Instant Video service. Netflix is also on a successful roll with 10 new and returning original series in 2014.
Cable companies say they have to bundle everything together to pay for the good stuff like HBO and Showtime, but their business models are becoming less and less relevant.
