Charter Communications has announced that it will offer a cheaper cable TV option without sports to reflect the changing landscape of cable TV. This new package will allow customers to opt into a sports-lite package, which will be cheaper than the traditional cable TV package that includes sports channels. The move comes as more and more customers are cutting the cord and turning to streaming services for their entertainment needs.
The new package will be available to Charter customers who want to save money on their cable TV bill but still want access to popular channels. The sports-lite package will include popular channels like CNN, HGTV, and the Food Network, but will not include sports channels like ESPN. This new offering is expected to be popular with customers who are looking for a more affordable cable TV option.
Charter’s move follows similar offerings from other cable TV providers like Spectrum, which offers a TV Choice package that allows customers to choose 10 channels from a list of 65 for $24.99 per month. Other providers like Xfinity and Cox also offer basic cable TV packages that are more affordable than their traditional cable TV packages.
While cable TV providers are facing increasing competition from streaming services, there is still a demand for traditional cable TV packages. Many customers still prefer the convenience of having all their channels in one place, and cable TV providers are responding to this demand by offering more affordable options.
Charter’s new sports-lite package is a welcome addition to the cable TV landscape, offering customers a more affordable option that still includes popular channels. As the cable TV industry continues to evolve, it’s likely that we’ll see more providers offering similar packages to meet the changing needs of customers.
