NEW YORK (AP) — New York-area cable company Cablevision is offering an Internet package that bundles in a digital antenna for TV service and is aimed at so-called "cord-cutters" who detest pricey channel packages.

The cheapest offering, for about $35 a month, includes 5 megabit-per-second Internet downloads, a complementary Mohu digital antenna that retails for $70 and access to the company's public Wi-Fi hotspots. Free Wi-Fi voice service is available with the purchase of a Moto G smartphone for $100.

Another package for $45 per month offers 50 mbps download speeds.

Subscribers can add HBO Now for an extra $15 a month, and rent modems for $5 extra per month.

Previously, the cheapest Internet-only service carried 15 mbps speeds and cost $40 per month for the first year.
