The debate in the TV industry has been whether the rising cost of cable TV and growing online video options are prompting people to cut the cord of pay TV. A number of pay-TV executives say that cord-cutting is still a small trend that has largely stemmed from weak economic conditions. But one little-discussed factor is cable operators' pricing policies, which can prompt people to keep TV even if they don't want it.Reference Link
