Cable COO: Scant evidence that TV viewers will move online

Pressed on whether online television will erode cable subscriptions, Comcast chief operating officer Steve Burke did not sound afraid of the Internet.

During an interview at the All Things Digital conference outside Los Angeles on Wednesday, he was confident about the specter of evolving consumption habits.

“The fact of the matter is, and it's a little counter-intuitive ... that quarter by quarter, year by year, the number of people subscribing to what we call multi-channel video, whether it's satellite, telco, or cable, has always gone up. It’s never gone down."

Burke said "there is very little evidence that people are giving up their subscription television.”
