N.Y. lawmakers propose tax on streaming services like Netflix, Spotify


Donna Lynne Amareld has “cut the cord” twice, most recently about a year ago, when her cable and internet bill ballooned to $220 a month, she said.

This month, as YouTube TV hikes its rate from $64.99 to $72.99, her monthly costs for streaming services and internet will increase to more than $170, she said. She misses the Lifetime channel, which was one of her favorites during the decades she had cable, but she doesn’t want to pay for another service that carries it.
