They obviously need to wait until their quarterly call. This should be awesome. :)
 It is somewhat worse than that too. The cable and satellite companies get the pricing they do because of the number of subscribers they bring to the table. Once people start cutting the cord, they will loose direct revenue as you mention, but they will also loose the strong bargaining position with the content providers. So their rates will likely increase which will make their packages even more expensive. Doh!

 No it isn't. It is even more lame on Android since Android takes up more of that space than iOS. :)

I suspect that some hesitation is the loss of transaction information. With the swipe cards they know who you are. Pretty sure with Apple pay they won't.
 I think you are confusing a few things. Apple Pay will work as a "card present" transaction. Today, "card present" transaction liability falls on the issuing banks. "Card not present" transaction liability typically falls on the merchants. So liability has not changed on the same class of transaction under Apple Pay. The real story was that Apple Pay was to be considered "card present". That story came and went and then this liability stuff popped up, but it was already...
