Streaming TV Is Beginning to Look A Lot Like Cable


US: Why can't we just pay for the cable channels we actually want a la carte? 

(a few years later) 

ALSO US:  Why do we have to pay for all these streaming services individually? Can't there be some kind of package to save money?

The general idea is that each of these TV services will appeal to cord-cutters and cord-nevers who merely consider old-style cable and satellite TV too costly. To overcome that, each offers what are called “skinny bundles” of channels, with fewer, at various prices.

The last thing we need is to just port outmoded cable and satellite services to the internet.
