First signs of real change in the TV industry

We read about cord-cutters and Over the Top OTT television a lot, but did not see major TV networks or cable operators get under pressure like music labels many years ago or newspapers in the past decade. We know that fundamental change is about to come, but do not know how exactly it will play out. Read an interesting piece about a small cable operator from St. Louis "de-listing" Viacom channels, while at the same time Viacom sells its channels to an OTT service coming from Sony somewhen in the near future. Once sacred business relations are disrupted. The avalanche is starting to gain momentum.
