Did I infer it right, that they were able to cut the price of their unlimited plan by $10 / month by dropping the "MetroStudio" music service that I would never have used to begin with?

I wish cable could do this with ESPN!

Cable can.

But they won't.

Because ESPN is owned by Disney. If any cable company did that. Disney will pull ALL it's channels of that system. How long to those customers flee? Or Disney would jack the rates on all their other channels.

While I'm not a believer in Cord-Cutting Theory, leading the pack of the minority who discover its benefits are ... Disney Channel Moms.
Kids are fine with Mom-picked content, which is reasonably available on DVD and Netflix. The real threat would be pulling LifeTime.

They can, but they won't - because it is easier to raise rates 5% per annum, knowing that 100 million households aren't going anywhere. Even at $70/month, basic pay-tv is dirt cheap entertainment.

I agree with your Elray. I did cut the cord must of the stuff I have are on netflix,hulu or amazon prime the only thing i miss is live sport except for MLB,NBA and the NHL that have their own cord cutting apps. Heres looking at your NFL. Also Lifetime (the man hating channel) has recently been changing and catering to military families which i like but still can't stand their lifetime "man hating movies' only my gf watches that channel.

A) NFL has more games on OTA than any of those other sports.

B) You can get Sunday Ticket streaming like you can the others without DirecTv.

A- Only if your team lives in the area. Not in my case specially when the Jets play.

B- cant get DirecTV thanks to my management corp. The streaming i have to look into it
