IHS: Cable sports channels facing “perfect storm”

A report from IHS Media & Technology says that some well-established cable channels are facing a “perfect storm” from the twin threats of cord-cutting and ever-rising sports rights costs.

IHS says that case in point is sports giant ESPN, which has seen overall subscriber numbers crash from 99 million in September 2013 to 88 million in September 2017.
