Cablevision (NYSE: CVC) has introduced a new broadband offering specifically targeted to "cord cutters and cord nevers," packaging its Optimum broadband service with a Mohu Leaf digital TV antenna.

Cablevision is simultaneously introducing the Optimum "Everyday Low Price" bundle, a $34.99-a-month service that includes 5 Mbps downstream Internet service, the digital antenna and a Freewheel Wi-Fi phone.
