There's an interesting analogue between television "cable-cutting" and the rise of single-page application (SPA) web development, of all things.
Cable-cutting is now at the point where having cable is cheaper and/or less annoying than paying for or constantly managing subscriptions to a dozen different streaming services. It's so bad that YouTube started offering "YouTube TV," which they marketed as some kind of exciting new product to help you cut down on all those pesky streaming services. It's essentially just cable TV.
