15 Things You Need To Know About Internet Porn

Cable and satellite television companies are losing revenue and, more importantly, profits, because unsurprisingly people aren’t paying for pay-per-view porn anymore now that it’s free on the internet, the Journal reports.

While this should be obvious, the trend was particularly pronounced this quarter and doesn’t show any signs of abating. 

For the TV people it’s not a big hit in terms of revenues, but it certainly is in terms of profits, because pay-per-view porn is very profitable. Porn is basically a commodity and yet it’s being rented at prices closer to $10 versus $5 for a Hollywood film. So even though it’s not Earth-shattering, as that business disappears, it’s going to hit margins.
