Report: Cox posted short-lived anti-cord-cutting 'manifesto'

Cox Communications apparently posted a guide to prospective cord cutters, warning them of the unforeseen costs associated with ditching pay-TV.

However, the post -- originally unearthed by cable-hating tech blog exstreamist.com -- appears to have been taken down. Cox reps have yet to respond to FierceCable inquiries about the matter. 

According to the Exstreamist report, which was later corroborated by Business Insider, Cox warned consumers that the streaming-only life could drive up their ISP bills while forcing them to buy expensive hardware, like smart TVs. 

In what Business Insider describes as a "manifesto," Cox also said that only 28 percent of TV is watched live. You can read the Exstreamist post here.
