Cord cutting is growing, and cable companies are the first to feel the pain. Now it seems they have a new plan to reach out to cord cutters.
Now we have a growing list of cable companies joining the cord cutting trend of offering live streaming services with no contracts and more flexible options.
This week Charter’s Spectrum TV service launched a sports-free streaming service starting at $19.95 a month (with taxes and a $6 a month broadcast TV fee). You can choose additional streaming add-ons for more channels and even a sports package if you want sports. (You will need to have Spectrum Internet to use the Spectrum TV service.)
While this may not be a deal for everyone, it is nice to see them trying something new with a sports-free option.
A few days later CenturyLink also launched its cord cutting live TV streaming service. Starting at $45 a month, you can access 45 channels including many locals but not Fox locals. Fox did not sign up for this service, and FX and FS1 to name a few will not be found on this live TV streaming service.
It does not stop there. Comcast and Verizon are both working on live TV streaming services. Word is other cable companies are working on a service or are thinking about it.
So do any of these services grab your attention? Why or why not? Leave us a comment and let us know.
