The return to the cable TV model of packaging channels was inevitable.

For some reason the link won't work for me. Will these bundles feature a discounted price vs. subscribing for each service separately? If so, seems like a good thing from my POV. I currently subscribe to most of those services.

Next time a new, improved technology comes out we should all resist. DVDs and satellite was all we needed.

R3, In my experience, it starts out that way, but then they raise the price after a few months.

My friend signed up for the Disney/Hulu/Whatever bundle a few years ago but hadn't read the fine print carefully- it was only a good deal for 3 months.

Comcast/Spectrum keeps bombing me with their "Disney+ is now included!" crap which I find really offensive. The last thing we need is bundling of cable and streaming. The great thing about streaming was that you only paid for what you wanted to watch, unlike cable where I'm paying for channels (like Fox News) that I never watch.

Bundling always works against the consumer.
