The downside is that cable companies are seeing people 'cut the cord' and give up cable TV and only purchase internet through them and since this leads to a large revenue loss for them, they are now putting monthly data limits on their internet.
Many may think they don't do enough to burn through their monthly limit so it doesn't matter, but when an entire family of 4 or 5 or whatever all want to watch streaming programs constantly, especially in 4k now, it burns through data like crazy.
They don't generally just throttle you now. They straight up charge you for any amount you go over by a decent amount.

Their answer would be because they receive home phone, cell phone, and wifi plus other channels or shows that hulu doesn't have and not have to wait to watch movies and shows basically once you can get them on DVD on Netflix.
But my answer is so I can get free cable and WiFi without having to pay 😁
