These guys must have slipped, fallen and bumped their damn heads if they think anyone will be paying $200 a month for cable in 2020. At that price, you could get twenty or more different streaming services instead. My prediction? We'll finally have à la carte channel selections instead of the traditional bundled cable packages we see now.
A new report from the NPD Group says that even though wages have flattened in recent years, cable prices have continued to increase by 6% every year. And with those carriage fee disputes only resulting in higher prices for subscribers, NPD predicts that by 2015, the average cable bill will be $123 and will soar to $200 by 2020.
