They thought they could strong arm themselves into higher fees too, as they have with their local affiliates.   But the cable/sat/virtual companies have all started pushing back because it's made their businesses basically unprofitable.

The virtual MVPDs are only replacing a small percentage of cord cutters.  If you don't have the need for live sports, you can get all your programming on demand for much cheaper usually.  These sports networks can't pay their bills if only sports fans are left on the bundles.

Mostly makes sense, but it's the end of another shift with a lot of thinking, so my brain is fried. What's an MVPD?
