Re: Internet...
@Mike I have often thought that this is why we pay such high costs for internet today.  I personally feel as though these companies are trying to make up for lack of profits in other areas by charging us much more than they need to for internet.  Any thoughts?

Re: Internet...
All of which is why traditional service providers have moved away from video as a the main revenue service to broadband as the top earner. I guess there are worse things than being the "dumb pipe."

If Sony's Vue also added internet, it would be easy to give up cable.


Totally makes sense. All in one is the most trending concept in the world of providers now.

Re: Bring it On
@afwriter:

I wouldn't blame you with DVR. Once you get used to that feature it is difficult to give that up. That comes in as a handy and convenient option.

Bring it On
I was going to ditch DirectTV and go with Sling, but now I am rethinking that strategy.  The one thing that I would miss is DVR but if VUE offers that as well I think it is going to start killing traditional cable and satellite.

Internet...
If Sony's Vue also added internet, it would be easy to give up cable. The package sounds very affordable, of course it would depend upon what really comes at $30--I know we use our PlayStation's apps to watch things like Netflix, so it would be great to add the cable channels we watch. If Sony can save customers money, I see a lot of gamers queueing up to switch.

sony extends service
Sony is offering more services is a great opprtunity for the business and customers. For them it means more money, for us the customers it means more services being offered. They said they were promoting/offering slim services packages starting at $30 month for new areas etc. Maybe it can be a plus for adding their services connected to TV channels etc.
