Charter Offers Another Skinny Bundle Streaming TV Option

Charter is launching a 2nd streaming service called Spectrum Choice.

This is not a standard over-the-top service (OTT) service since it is delivered via a Charter broadband connection (IP).

The goal of this service is to provide their broadband only customers with a low-cost video option.

The streaming wars (monthly cost):
1) Hulu Live — $40
2) DirecTV Now — $35
3) Sling TV — $20
4) PlayStation Vue — $40
5) YouTube TV — $40
6) Verizon — TBD
7) Charter Spectrum TV Stream — $22
8) CenturyLink — $15
9) Comcast Instant TV — $18
10)
Philo — $16
11) Spectrum Choice — $25

What does this mean for advertisers? In the short term, this could lead to more eyeballs for traditional TV content. In the long run, these households could receive addressable advertising.
