Sinclair won’t got down with the ship, but diamond seems like a canary in a coal mine for networks that rely on live local broadcasts. Sinclair owns local affiliates, but if cord cutting continues and Hulu live/sling/YouTubetv/all cease offering live programming, they’re up a creek too
I don't think that relying on live broadcasts is the problem.  Relying on expensive carriage fees paid by millions who don't watch the channel is the problem.  The forced bundle isn't going to translate into the streaming age, and the RSN bundle bubble is going to burst.
