Comcast just announced its earnings and a net increase in video
subscribers of 89,000 for Q415; but for the year they lost
36,000 video subscribers while gaining 410,000 broadband subscribers.

They don't state cable shavers. In any event, the obvious gain is in broadband.

Maybe the sky is not falling...

What makes you claim that the "sky is falling" if old-school MVPD subscriptions 
keep going down, Craig? Can you explain that?

As Bert likes to say, it is informative to look at the trends...

Indeed. Broadband up, legacy solutions down. Now explain why you think this is 
bad news.
