Lookoout cable companies might want to rethink a la carte
It's starting to get much easier to avoid buying cable packages you don't want. Often times you might find yourself interested in a particular cable channel to watch one particular show. With cable companies you would end up having to pay for a package of channels. Instead viewers are starting to have options like Hulu, Netflix or Amazon that might be more cost effective than paying more for channels you don't want/need. Amazon's per episode pricing is a bit on the pricey side still of a couple dollars per episode... that's starts to add up... which can get to $30 or more per season. Still potentially cheaper than a cable package for the same period of time that would cover, but still seems pricier than it should be. That said, it is still a viable option if it's cheaper than the package offered by your cable company.
So cable companies, you better rethink your strategy... the internet is about to change your business model.
