Being someone who closely follows Cable and Satellite, and because I work closely with some of the biggest names in Cable, I can say that in the talks I have had with cable brass they all say the same thing.

They made a mistake by not upgrading to newer technologies, they lost most of their good customers (the ones who subbed to everything) as they could not meat their demands while satellite could (such as Dolby Digital, HDTV, etc)

They dragged their feet in offering Digital Cable and did it on the cheep so that most of the high tech functions were not available even in their Digital product.

Many are now rushing to get their systems done so they can offer some HD by the end of the year.

The only really good roll out cable has had is its Cable modem service, its something that satellite will never really be able to touch.
