Price hikes for cord-cutters. What gives?

Price increases come in bunches, said Brett Sappington, a pay TV expert who follows traditional and Internet providers for the research outfit Parks Associates.

“The fact that they're all doing price hikes in a group helps them,” he said.

Most of the companies initially launched with really low prices, and leaner content offerings by association, to attract the most attention. As the bundles have fattened, so too have the prices, Sappington said.

Currently, there as many as 6 million subscribers to online pay TV services in the U.S., according to Parks Associates. That number will shoot up to 9 million subscribers by the end of 2018 and double to more than 18 million subscribers by the end of 2020.
