My biggest peeve is that the broadband providers jack up your high speed internet monthly rate if you don’t subscribe to any other service. So if you ditch their cable & phone service, you pay an extra $10/month for internet. It sucks.
Either way, I think that the online video revolution is about to start hurting cable/satellite companies in a huge way.
The Boxee Box and perhaps Google TV will be aiding consumers in their quest to cut out costly cable TV subscriptions. The only major hurdle I see is live sports. We need standalone online sports subscription options.
