After cord-cutting there is cord-cheating

Uhm, the article takes "cord cutting" and then attempts to rename it as "cord cheating" to make you... what... feel bad?

Re: After cord-cutting there is cord-cheating

Cheating implies doing something wrong, which is what Cable Companies see it as.

When you're paying for a service like Netflix or Redbox you're not cheating, you're just being a savvy consumer.

VOD is quite pricy by comparison. I think the industry is just trying to come up with names that make it sound bad.

Only the cable companies would see valid, legal purchasing by consumers as cheating.

Next, the cable companies will try to find a way to label those consumers as criminals.
