Riot Games of the makers of the extremely popular League of Legends PC game has won a $10 million settlement in its ongoing legal battle with LeagueSharp, a subscription service that offered players automated play, which is essentially cheating.
While it was shut down in January, League Sharp was pulling in hundreds of thousands of dollars a month.
And finally an estimated 1.7 million cable subscribers cut the cord last year with Q4 purging another 319,000 paid TV customers alone.
Many factors contributed to the loss as the legitimate streaming networks like Sling TV and Playstation Vue grow in popularity.
This comes along with the news that more US homes have a Netflix account, and a DVR.
