Medium or message?

A different issue than usual.

Does information governance focus not only on what content you receive, but also on how you receive it?

“TV Viewers of the World, Untie: Finally Cutting Cable,” Wall Street Journal, July 16, 2014 D1  This focuses on possible cost savings availability through changing the medium (full TV package from, say, Comcast, or just getting basic internet and streaming selected shows or using a digital antenna) through which you receive TV.

Why do you care?  Is there an analogy in the business environment, where the packages through which you receive and send (or process) content may be more costly than just buying what you need and want?  Or is this just a question of focusing on where content comes from, and how, and what are the alternatives?
