DENVER—With more than a half-dozen virtual pay TV services offering similar skinny bundles of channels and roughly congruent price points, Fierce Editor-in-Chief Mike Dano asked a panel of video industry analysts at our Pay TV Show conference which vMVPD will be the first to succumb.

We got back some surprising answers. In fact, from cord cutting to the potential power of Amazon Channels, our Analyst Roundtable closing event was a highlight of the show. And in this podcast, you can hear the whole back-and-forth. (Note that you can hear more podcasts like this one by subscribing to FierceCable Radio on Stitcher and iTunes.)
