Just like I've been saying for years and people are slowly realizing there is no value to any of cables subscription packages.
Seriously? I have Comcast and pay just UNDER
$150 for TV, phone with unlimited long distance, and 20/5 internet. And service that I can count on one hand how many times it has been down in the last 6 years. I remember paying the days of paying $80 for basic phone and DSL "line charge" from Verizon, $30 for DSL ISP service, then paying $75 on top of that to DirecTV.
So, $185 for a phone line with no long distance and 768/128 DSL, and a dish that goes out every time the squirrels mated too close to it.
You couldn't pay ME enough to switch back to satellite and/or whatever glorified DSL the telcos are rolling out.
