Of course its going to cost more, they capitalize on anything that is growing in demand, this was a given, and I predicted this to happen a few years ago. I myself am a new cord cuter, not cus I dislike cable tv, but because of my current temporary financial situation (or lack of one, lol). So I have decided to cancel not only my satellite tv but my home phone too. I am currently watching my wifes netflicks account but I really do not like netflicks because half the shows I am used to watching are not even on there. but I have plans to eventually get an Antenna and start watching Antenna broadcasts why? because Antenna is Free, people seem to forget that. and there are channels on Antenna with tv shows that are NOT on netflicks, and guess what? I like some of those shows on Antenna.
