That's a very nice article, signots. Thanks. Not an insignificant point, but he says there is a $2 downside vs. a $5 upside. I would suggest that the $2 downside is trading risk, the $5 upside is an accurate reflection of value ($3 of it within the trading range). If you are thinking of getting back in, put in a low limit order. Looking at the chart, it may retest $8, but absent bad news it's not likely to go lower.

The whole thing just strikes me as an instance of the Europeans, with their clearer-eyed view of the world being far more accepting of an obvious TV viewing improvement, while all of these American companies do nothing because they have monopolies and don't need to do anything different...heaven forbid they should annoy their advertisers by making it easy to avoid advertisements. It's about their money, not us. OK, fine. I have my Tivo II with a lifetime subscription, and I will go yet another election year without seeing a single political advertisement (or any other ad, for that matter). That is priceless!
