People everywhere are cutting their pay tv services in exchange for web-based movie and tv show viewing. Check out this article from USATODAY.COM
Consumers cut pay-TV service for Web-based programming
In July, the Benediktssons of Chandler, Ariz., declared their independence
from cable television.
After watching their monthly bill steadily increase to $90, the family dropped their pay-TV subscription. But they didn't totally cut the cord.
Instead, they kept their Internet service from Cox Communications and use it to connect to Netflix for movies and TV shows such as Grey's Anatomy. "We decided to start trimming where we could, and the cable bill was low-hanging fruit," says Baldur Benediktsson, 44, a website content manager.
He and his wife, Kristin, also use a Roku set-top box to stream programs to their living room TV. A pair of rabbit-ear antennas receive local over-the-air digital TV signals displayed on 23-inch and 27-inch computer monitors that double as HDTVs.
Cable TV, he says, "gave us too much service for too much money, and we really didn't need it at all."
Lots of other viewers out there feel the same way. Nearly every pay-TV provider is leaking subscribers.
The nation's largest cable company, Comcast, lost 238,000 TV subscribers in the second quarter of this year; and No. 2 Time Warner Cable lost 130,000. Satellite TV provider Dish Network lost 135,000 subscribers. Its larger competitor, DirecTV, added 26,000, but that's down from the 100,000 it added in the second quarter last year.
