In this post, you will find great Cable Quotes from famous people, such as Greg Kinnear, John Ridley, Liam Cunningham, Billy Gardell, Marcia Clark. You can learn and implement many lessons from these quotes.
What MSNBC is, what cable news prime time has become in the shows that get the ratings, is the oped page of the newspaper.
I found out a lot of stuff through MTV, and I didn’t even have cable, I just saw it at friends‘ houses. But my culture in junior high was totally influenced by it.
I think you could argue that President Obama could have watched a little cable news… I do think that there is value in understanding where the conversation is and having a little less detachment where the popular conversation is.
You would rather pay $50 a month for a cable modem than a free voiceband modem because of the attractiveness of that broadband connection.
Our news is Fox News. It’s a cable channel and has nothing to do, frankly, with the entertainment area of the company. It’s the model of how this company was launched, and there are a lot of independent stations and Fox O&Os who have hugely successful news that our programming is the lead-in for.
On cable now, the writer is king. Any actor chases that.
When you go to cable, there are no stations and no affiliates and they allow you to do your show.
I don’t think that swearing or gratuitous violence or sex make a show better. I just think there are natural rhythms to a human being in these situations, and what happens in these situations that cable allows is a natural reaction.
A rule against paid fast lanes would encourage additional capacity; a rule permitting paid fast lanes would simply encourage cable companies to create congested slow lanes on the Internet so they could make money by selling fast lanes to big companies.
It’s ridiculous that we let broadcast and cable shows compete against each other at the Emmys. They are not the same animal.
I remember when cable happened and everyone said broadcast was dead, and then satellite happened and everyone said cable was dead, and then DVDs happened and everyone said everything was over. Nothing was over. I’m very optimistic about the future.
I don’t think you have to be in these serious, heavy, independent little movies to be an actor. Some of the most interesting acting I’ve seen is on cable television.
The TV Everywhere structure is good for all cable, satellite, and telephone distributors. It’s good for all networks. It’s good for studios that sell to networks, so it’s basically good for everybody on the business side.
Rarely, if ever, has a cable news channel employed a host who has previously campaigned for the business goals of the channel’s parent company. But as channels like MSNBC have moved to more opinionated formats, they have exposed themselves to potential conflicts.
Many of our constituents have one option for cable TV and one price. Our constituents desire choice.
One of the best pieces of advice I ever got in professional wrestling was use the exposure from cable’s number one rated television show to transition and move on to what you want to go into next.
For my generation of actors, it was about the theatre. Television didn’t exist. Coaxial cable didn’t exist.
While the rest of the cable news world moved to opinion, CNN allowed me to stay true to my hard-news roots and supported me with a true commitment to old-school journalism.
What NDS did is allow us to move into video capability with large service providers or cable providers – and the ability to do this out of the cloud. And that allows you to do it faster.
One thing that cable has done is trained the audience that, when a TV show is on, it should be on.
Look at the Chandra Levy case. It’s become a Star Chamber. The major networks, the cable networks, they’re being prosecutors. They’re judges and jurors and executioners. Well, c’mon, that’s ridiculous. But they’re doing it.
Because of network neutrality rules, activists can turn to the Internet to bypass the discrimination of mainstream cable, broadcast, and print outlets as we organize for change.
I’ve been watching a lot of cable shows like ‘The Wire’ and ‘Breaking Bad‘ and ‘Downton Abbey.’ I love how real the moments are.
Technology gives us the facilities that lessen the barriers of time and distance – the telegraph and cable, the telephone, radio, and the rest.
I believe that the Internet is the information highway. I’m religious about this. I don’t think it’s cable television.
In the 24-hour news cycle of cable, we don’t always get it right.
TV, in particular cable channels, has assumed the role of independent film.
I get really frustrated during a crisis when I go through all the cable channels and find – very often with the exception of CNN – that I’m not watching news at all. You think, ‘Well, God… there are talk shows, talk shows, talk shows and everyone is an expert!’
With people all the way from 17 to 2… ‘iCarly’ often is the No. 1 show, not just on cable but all of television.
The 8 P.M. hour in the cable news world is currently driven by the indomitable Bill O’Reilly, Nancy Grace, and Keith Olbermann. Shedding my own journalistic skin to try to inhabit the kind of persona that might coexist in that lineup is just impossible for me.
Some of the greatest shows in history – ‘Seinfeld,’ ‘Everybody Loves Raymond‘ and ‘House’ – had puny starts but the benefit of schedule protection, increasingly scarce in today’s DVR world. Cable nets can tolerate small ratings, building hits in progress like ‘Breaking Bad,’ or marathon their way to a ‘Duck Dynasty.’
Most of the best writing, the most creative writing, the most interesting, the most out-of-the-box kind of stuff, is being done on cable, you know, and on the computer. I mean, whatever it is, Amazon or Netflix or something. Because they’re just willing to take chances, you know, and there’s a market for it.
The current FCC chairman, Tom Wheeler, is highly regarded, but some distrust him because he is the former head lobbyist of both the cable and wireless phone industries. He’s also made some statements suggesting he doesn’t understand or opposes network neutrality.
People choose their modes of information in much more tunneled ways. I think cable news contributes for sure. I think President Trump contributes.
For most of the Latinos in our nation, merger between Comcast and Time Warner Cable would mean one company controlling their window to the world of culture and entertainment.
The major networks, the cable networks, they’re being prosecutors. They’re judges and jurors and executioners. Well, c’mon, that’s ridiculous. But they’re doing it.
Cable TV? Stressful? Never.
There seems to be a vulnerability at the networks in late night. They are losing more and more audience, particularly young viewers who are now looking at cable television. ‘Tonight‘ is an old show. CBS has reruns, and having a public affairs series like ‘Nightline’ on ABC is a big mistake.
My cell phone bill and my cable gets cut off all the time. Not because I don’t have the money, but because I just forget to pay my bills.
You know something that you’ll never hear on one of these cable talking-head shows? One of the guests going, ‘Hmm, I don’t know.’
I was an avid ‘Chitrahaar’ and ‘Superhit Muqqabala’ watcher. We did not have cable TV for a long time, so that was my only source of entertainment growing up. My great fantasy was to be in ‘Chitrahaar!’
With the rise of cable, network is clearly floundering because the characters on cable are far more fascinating than they are on network. Network television is trying to figure it out. Network television really relies on story rather than character, and cable relies on character.
I think that what people want from cable news channels is the sense that if there’s hard news, it’s going to come up immediately.
Divestitures have long been the preferred remedy for horizontal mergers, where there’s an overlap between the two companies. Airlines, for example, may have to sell routes or airport gates where the two airlines compete; cable operators may have to sell operations in cities where both companies operate.
Summer is a great opportunity for all of cable. People love to find original episodes.
I have more faith in doing something creative for a cable station or something like Yahoo or Google or Amazon. What Netflix did with ‘House of Cards‘ and David Fincher was brilliant. That is inspiring to me. I think there is more chance for creativity in animation, it just hasn’t happened there yet.
The only reason I’m ever in character as ‘Larry The Cable Guy’ is because that’s what I’m hired to do. In my movies, obviously they hired ‘Larry The Cable Guy’ to be ‘Larry The Cable Guy.’ When I do my shows, I’m ‘Larry The Cable Guy.’ When I do Jay Leno, it’s: ‘Please welcome ‘Larry The Cable Guy.’
The character of Cable is complex.
In theater, you can be free. That’s how Lin-Manuel Miranda got to do the most revolutionary piece of theater with ‘Hamilton‘: color-blind casting in roles in which they would never cast Latinos if it were a film or TV show. It just goes to show that Hollywood and cable are way behind.
I have no problem at all going back and forth between cable and network.
Obviously with the onset of cable and satellite, there are more opportunities for programming and original programming, so it creates more opportunities for actors and producers and directors and everything.
I don’t have cable. I just never watched a lot of TV.
I think it’s good news that cable television is so, so supportive of the Louis C.K.s, the Lena Dunhams, the Matthew Weiners, and the Vince Gilligans. There’s just so many people fearlessly making their stuff, you know?
It’s really difficult for mainstream – let’s say, cable outlets – to talk about things like income inequality, wealth inequality when the advertisers that are funding their shows are the same corporations that want to ensure that the same system continues.
The highest-caliber dramatic work produced for TV – not just in cable but something like ‘The Good Wife‘ at network – is consistently great.
When I was in the sixth form I presented a cable and satellite programme about music, television and video. I used to do public speaking competitions.
Television is better than it’s ever been in history. A lot of stories are being pushed – because of how complicated they are to make – toward Netflix and other channels on cable.
Eighteen fifty-eight was a year of great technological advancement in the West. That was the year when Queen Victoria was able, for the first time, to communicate with President Buchanan, through the Transatlantic Telegraphic Cable. And they were the first to ‘Twitter‘ transatlantically.
With all the cable and Internet channels you have available, you have so much opportunity. If you want to say something, you can say it and have people see it.
I’m interested in all forms of content, including Internet and gaming. On the TV side, cable has sparked a renaissance of the medium and that will continue for storytellers.
The entire experience of ‘Sonali Cable’ has been beautiful. It has been a long journey for me, both physically and emotionally and a great learning experience.
A great thing is happening on cable TV. You see characters change in stories over years, like in Tolstoy. That’s a whole, thrilling new form that I really enjoy. They are Tolstoy-an in their endless character development and narrative changes… a show like ‘Breaking Bad’ is astonishing.
I don’t even see it as cable TV anymore. I’ve been called ‘Larry the Cable Guy’ for so long, I don’t even think about it being about cable. I don’t know anything about cable.
Cable news is nothing more than entertainment, except for the International version of CNN and perhaps the BBC.
The day my film ‘Dum’ released, it was available on pirated DVDs and VCDs. They showed the movie on cable channels. It was pathetic. It was so frustrating.
I really like cable T.V.
Disclosure of the full monthly costs that consumers pay is the first step to ensuring that cable companies stop taking advantage of consumers.
Listen, a cable series is a beautiful thing because there’s such amazing writing happening on television, and it’s a schedule that allows you to do a play or two. There’s a reason everybody wants that job!
Amy Rapp, my producing partner, and I are drawn to character-driven material. We’re developing and producing movies and TV, fiction and non-fiction, studio and independent, broadcast and cable, theatre, and web so our slate is really diverse.
The cable law. Prasar Bharati. The Broadcasting Bill. These are all overlapping things.
Every cable news channel was a very big business success before Donald Trump started lying about Barack Obama’s birth certificate. And they were all making more money than they knew what to do with then and more money than Donald Trump has ever seen in his life.
It’s very difficult to break into motion pictures, but it’s oddly easier for directors today because of independent films and cable, who have inherited for the most part those films of substance that the studios are reluctant to finance.
When you look at what you get in a cable subscription, it is a spectacular value. For $70 or $80 a month is what it would cost a family of four to go to the movies one time.
The budget on cable television is dramatically less than network television.
The more I watched cable, the more I realized the value of newspapers.
Human attention is limited, and a massive number of newly browsable books from the long tail necessarily compete with the biggest best-sellers, just as cable siphons audience from the major networks, and just as the Web pulls viewers from TV.
Unsurprisingly, an uninterruptible power supply (UPS) – once a luxury for room-sized computer installations – is now a standard item both in home offices and all the networked tiers above, protecting servers and online service providers, Internet backbones, phone companies, and even cable TV networks.
Cable television is basically now the business of former political professionals. Joe Scarborough, a former Florida Congressman, is a far more successful cable host than he ever was a politician.
What’s great about cable is that the ceiling of expectation is lowered because fewer people have to tune in for it to be a success. You don’t need 23 million people a week like you do in broadcast.
Television, cable, features are always out there.
All things take time. A lot of my films still run on cable and are in video stores, and there’s a whole generation that doesn’t know who I am. So, it’s a dichotomy. In some people‘s minds I may never grow up.
I guess probably in my time in politics, it continued to be affirmed to me that the African-American community, despite being subscription television’s most valuable customers, they are very underserved by cable and satellite television programming options.
