Have you cut the cord?
I was asked today to run down recent reports that cable and satellite TV providers were losing subscribers in big numbers and came across a recent report on CNET’s gadget blog CRAVE which in turn brings you to an AP article here
The losses seem to be exaggerated as only .2% of satellite and cable subscribers quit their services. However, the real factor is that this is the first time that the industry has seen a quarterly net loss in subscriptions. For years the cable services have been losing customers to satellite and other services such as Verizon and ATT, but the net result for the industry was always a gain in subscriptions. Now, for the first time, the industry is looking at a net loss.
