"Motley Fool" video predicts the demise of cable

I’ll pass along this video from “The Motley Fool”, “Dear Comcast: It’s Over”, link here.  The link appeared on AOL’s homepage today. 

True, I see Facebook posts from friends who want to cut cable altogether and go to video on demand. But you usually need a "paywall" Cable subscription to see a lot of episodes from TV presented in VOD format. 
It promises stock tips related to the idea that the traditional cable TV business will vanish to video on demand.
I have to admit some annoyance to cheesy techniques.  It doesn’t tell you how long the video is, and it does that pop-up “leave this page?” when you cut it off.  That’s rather tacky and rude.
