I noticed I asked this question 5 years ago and still no movement from COX.
Why can other providers around the Country do this and COX can't? Whatever
the excuse is appears to have been solved by other providers.
I don't understand the logic not to offer it especially with so many dropping
cable TV keeping internet and buying a streaming package they can use
on all their TVs as well as cell phone. Granted you loose the rental
box fee but you keep a service vs. cancelling cable TV.
Otherwise eliminate the rental box fee that provides everything one pays for not that little box that doesn't
get everything you pay for. Somehow watching TV on a cell phone or iPad
doesn't offer the same experience as my TV.
One big benefit would be if Cable TV goes out you can still watch it through an
app on your firestick/Roku/ whatever internet streaming box. I have had plenty of cases
my cable tv would go down but internet worked.
I know this is an old rant (5 years old) but I have to say some of the streaming packages
are starting to look good compared to the cost of cable TV.
The cable industry has a death grasp on the cable box equipment rental fee.
50.4 million cord-cutters can't be wrong.
Surprised the article didn't mention Youtube TV.
It didn't mention YouTube TV but I think the concept of "cutting" is based on YouTube, the pioneer of streaming video. Watch what you want when you want instead of being tethered to some linear schedule. It seems like cable-TV also never got their on-demand content figured. They do offer on-demand but it's more limited, restrictive, incomplete. It's a horrible value.
