It will soon be $100.

I get free tv for now. Just tune in OTA. Guess they will figure out a way to end that soon.

The only problem I see is that more cable providers will probably be incentivised to introduce more restrictive data caps to try to curtail competition, or a way to get the same amount of money that they would have been getting if said customer had bundled cable as well.
