Rainbow Communications, which supplies phone, broadband and cable to Northeast Kansas, said it is pulling the plug on traditional cable service to focus on streaming video.

"Based on what we see for the future and what’s best for our customers, Rainbow Communications will no longer provide TV service as part of our entertainment package," Rainbow told its customers, pointing out that more than 80% of its internet usage was streaming video.

Rainbow also cited the cost of content and the difficulty of independent providers to offer quality lineups without boosting rates. "Instead," it said, "we will focus our efforts on delivering the best internet speeds possible so customers can watch high-quality and less-expensive TV channels over our high-speed internet connection."
