Dear NBC/CBS/Fox/ABC et al - we aren't channel surfing on a Friday night, although we do watch some of your shows....via your apps on our AppleTV rather than using, say, a DVR (which we don't have). Comcast makes us buy TV service in order to have the higher speed internet (in my area that is speeds higher than 15mb/s)
So yes - we pay for it. But only to get to 50mb/s service (although that was recently upgraded to 100mb/s a few months ago).
I purchased the cheapest bundle to get high speed as both my wife and I work from home occasionally -- and the real reason is that we stream netflix on our iPads separately at night :-) Also - I can receive OTA which we used to do until realizing we needed more than 25mb/s service.
We spend most of our time watching Netflix and a bit of Amazon Prime. I pulled the power cord from the oversized Xfinity device so that my baby daughter wouldn't burn her hand on it.
While I've been tempted to watch the "free" bundled HBO I find the menu system on Xfinity to be tiresomely complex and slow. I just want to see the channels I subscribe to - not the other 960 that I don't. My Pavlovian response has developed "if the channel takes more than 2 seconds to appear - it isn't part of my subscription"
