Wouldn't that encourage cord-cutting?

This is why I cut the cord: too much money for too few shows I actually want to watch.

There is plenty of enjoyable content depending on your taste. I just won't watch shows in prime time with commercials anymore. Commercial free Hulu for $12 a month is worthwhile. The typical network show averages about 42 minutes. So, four shows can be enjoyed, instead of three filled with commercials.

OK you're an ad for TV

A rigorous definition of monopoly is the existence of monopoly prices within a geographical region, which describes the result of restrict output being an increase in profits rather than a decrease as one would expect in a free market.

This applies perfectly to the telcom monopolies. They are protected from the rest of society, given legal protection that denies the rest of us any freedom to offer our own services. Is it any wonder they are not competitive when they don't have to be?

It might help if they didn't shove an hour's worth of advertising down your throat for a half hour video. YouTube is getting worse too.

And also by not listening to consumers about what THEY want to watch. I remember me dropping cable TV when they removed the ONE single channel I enjoyed (AMC).

Broadcast TV as it currently stands is a dying format. People today want to watch shows at their convenience, not on a set schedule and surrounded by ads.

The networks had a chance to innovate and adapt to the market by letting people choose the channels they actually want, on demand shows, etc but they chose to ignore the customers and raise prices instead. Their death will not be mourned.
