Cord cutting was supposed to bring "skinny" packages and lower prices. But they keep adding channels to these "Over the top" services and raising the price. I cancel Cable/Youtube TV in the offseason, but football season always brings me back for a few months. I would happily just pay $15-$20 for the sports channels I need to watch BYU games. Netflix, Amazon, and over-the-air TV meet the rest of my needs.
I know it is a pipe dream. I just think some day a company will give customers the video service they want and reap the rewards. Lower cost for them of fewer niche channels. More subscribers, because that is what people really want.
I would be nice if Netflix would add ESPN and FoxSports live sports for add'l $10-15/month. But Disney would never allow it. They are building competitors to Netflix instead. Proliferation, just what I want, 10 different video services to subscribe to. I hope that craziness only lasts a short while and consolidation eventually comes.
