Nextstar and Media General apparently reached an impasse in their merger negotiations as of Wednesday, with Nextstar offering $16.31 per share and Media General asking $18.60. “Time is of the essence and further delays in reaching reasonable terms for a transaction could impact the value creation we outlined at the time we announced our original proposal,” warned Nextstar CEO Perry Spook. Nextstar stepped in with an unsolicited bid in September after Media General agreed to pay $2.4 billion for Meredith.

Has the sticker shock of programming shaken Apple to the core? It appears the tech giant “pressed the hold button” on plans to launch a skinny bundle of live streaming programming channels, according CBS CEO Les Moonves, speaking at the Business Insider Ignition conference.

EXCLUSIVE: A new study from Revolt, surveying 23-29 year-olds, aims to unlock ideas for attracting disruptive video consumers. Some insights into opportunities for packaging: 72 percent of respondents want a package that allows them to upgrade their TV at a discounted price; 66 percent would like to bundle their cable subscription with a music streaming service and 88 percent want a cable package that also provides access to free on-demand movies. “We all know consumers have an increasingly complicated relationship with cable TV, but these research findings outline an emerging marketplace where digital native audiences are reimagining ‘the cord,’” Jake Katz, VP of Insights and Strategy at the network, tells Cynopsis. “And in this new normal, high quality longform content is still seen as worth paying for, best viewed on a traditional TV, but its packaging is more efficiently bundled, priced fairly, and unlocked from the live feed as we know it. Find more here.

More on Millennials: The demo still consumes TV shows more than any other type of video content, with 73 percent watching network and cable TV shows regularly – just slightly less than the 75 percent reported by GenX, according to TiVo’s Third Annual Millennial survey. And while 61 percent of Millennials regularly access streaming content, versus 51 percent for GenX and 39 percent of Baby Boomers, 79 percent said they are not seriously thinking about cutting the cord. “Even though Millennials love streaming services, they are primarily watching traditional TV shows on those particular services,” Frank Foster, SVP and GM at TiVo Research, tells Cynopsis. “And also, more importantly, they are not looking to cancel their paid TV subscription.”

Then there’s a study from Gfk MRI, “Cord Evolution,” which says over one in five U.S. consumers are considering cutting back on pay TV. The study dubs these estimated 49 million consumers “defectors,” versus the 22 million “desirers” (9 percent) who want to maintain, increase or return to pay TV service. One big difference between the groups: 70 percent of desirers say live TV is important to them, versus 50 percent of defectors.

Last but not least comes a report from Pricewaterhouse Coopers, “Videoquake 3.0: The Evolution of TV’s Revolution,” which notes consumers ages 18 to 24 are 67 percent more likely to be cord-nevers than cord-cutters. The only other demo in which the cord-nevers exceeds cord-cutters is adults ages 50 to 59, who are 78 percent more likely to be cord-nevers – but their reasoning differs. While older consumers, who grew up with free TV, are more likely to give up TV because it isn’t worth the cost, the younger group just figures they can find the content elsewhere.

Have you cut the pay-TV cord? Let us know in the new Cynopsis poll: http://cynopsis.com/poll/
