Verizon (NYSE:VZ) is looking to shake up the cable television business by paying television providers based on how many people actually watch their channel. Disney's (NYSE:DIS) ESPN averages around 1 million viewers. Comcast's (NASDAQ:CMCSA) USA Channel averages around 1.3 million viewers. Verizon paid $5 per household per month for ESPN but only $0.68 per month for USA. What would Verizon's plan mean Disney and Comcast? What would the plan mean for Netflix (NASDAQ:NFLX)? In this installment of MarketFoolery, our analysts discuss the potential game changer.
