Hulu Blazing a New Path in Streaming TV

One big drawback for cable subscriptions is that they’re more one-size-fits-all than most consumers would like. If you want to watch a few baseball games per week and nothing else, you have to subscribe to a basic cable package with a sports package add-on. This may cost $50 or more, which may not be worthwhile for a few hours of baseball. […] The value of cable to each consumer is very different, but the price is often the same. This isn’t a great way for either side to do business. […] Streaming companies like Netflix, Hulu, and Time Warner’s HBO Now have far more options than cable ever had when it comes to commercials, how many streams you can run at a time, and even resolution. – Travis Hoium, The Motley Fool
