Amid growing industry concerns about cord-cutting, Mr. Plepler said he believes the pay-TV industry is moving toward offering “skinny” bundles, smaller packages of channels. He said that outcome would benefit HBO, putting it in reach for more households. “What people really want are bundles that don’t have 500 channels,” he said. – Amol Sharma, The Wall Street Journal
