Coming Soon: A Streaming TV Bundle for People Who Don’t Like Sports

A group of cable channels is pairing up to launch a sports free bundle.

The group includes:
1) Discovery Communications
2) Viacom
3) AMC Networks
4) A+E Networks
5) Scripps Networks Interactive

The cost will be less than $20/month.

Why does this matter? Sports channels like ESPN are the most expensive part of the cable bundle despite going unwatched by the majority of viewers.


The average cable bill is $103/month.

Breakout if consumer switched to the non-sports bundle:
1)
Non-sports bundle: $20
2) Internet service: $50
3) Total monthly cost: $70

The above scenario would reduce a monthly pay-TV bill by $33 (32%)
