Time Warner Cable reportedly paying producers to keep TV off the web (update) | The Verge
: "While there's a growing population of cord-cutters — those who get their TV from the internet rather than traditional cable services — there's still a large amount of content (like sports and HBO) that just isn't available online in a timely fashion. According to Bloomberg, that's partly because cable companies like Time Warner Cable are offering incentives to media companies and content providers to keep their shows off of internet services. Bloomberg's unnamed sources said those incentives were typically either more money or the threat of dropping programming from the media company, though there were no specific examples of companies that have been strongarmed in such a fashion."
