I don't know. I'm one of those homes and it has nothing to do with economics. It has to do with finally getting sick of cable because I get everything I want to watch online.

I don't know if that is representative or not, but it could be a factor.

Were it not for the soccer channel and my husband I'd have dumped cable a long time ago.

I don't get news from cable and ALL of the good cable shows you can get on Netflix or Hulu if youre willing to wait. For the phenomenal savings of about $200 a month.

I've read A LOT of people are dumping cable because of that.

"phenomenal savings of about $200 a month. "

does that mean you paid $200 a month for cable?

I thought Top 120 channels for $60 was a little steep

It's bundled. But yeah, we have Showtime too. They had an offer where you have it free for a while but I think we're paying for it now because we've been too lazy to cancel it.

But still Netflix is what? Last time I checked about $8 a month. If they doubled that it would still be a bargain. Heck if they tripled it.

The kids are watching The Office on Netflix right now. Soccer is almost the only thing they ever use cable for anymore. Right now they're knee deep in the European Championships so they're using the Soccer Channel a lot though.

More and more people are getting cable internet only (sometimes with basic cable) and streaming digital content e.g. Hulu, Netflix, or Amazon.

Premium cable is losing its appeal except for special series like HBO's Game of Thrones. But after that, some people drop the premium cable finding it to offer little of interest while being exhorbitant in price. The films on demand from premium cable are severely limited and change like molasses.

What message? "Blame and divide"

Sucks for the Republicans.... like fox..... but we don't seem to have a problem

Bottom line: Poor Dems moaning about their terribly ridiculous shell of a "president"

All comes back to "fool me once, shame on me, fool me twice shame on you"

Where's Oprah? Obama boy is all the clown has....... and a few illegals

I only have cable because it makes the fastest internet cheaper...what does this have to do with Obama?

The message is--- everyone buy cable.

I don't trust people who don't watch TV! Doesn't have to be in real time, but the point remains.

At least you have a choice, whether to pay or not. In Norway you do not have a choice, if you buy a TV you are forced by law to pay TV viewing tax at $500 a year, to fund our PBS like programs. Netflix comes on top of that.

I got caught viewing TV without paying.....the gov looking for your TV 1984

With fewer having cable TV, fewer can watch Obama speeches and his greek colums, made in Holllywood. At least something is Made in the USA :)

For stupidity's sake I'm going to point out that as the article mentions, people now rely on local broadcast which has NBC, CBS etc.... These local channels carry current news almost every time of the day.

Not only are people without cable TV watching the president's speeches, they see it in HD over the air.

Hey we agree on something

I pay $7.99 for hulu plus
$7.99 for Netflix streaming
$12.95 a month for TiVo Premiere and pull broadcasting over the air.

Monthly bill under $30 a month. F off cable!

Tivo ROCKS~!!

I actually got 3 TB hard drive. I get cable for around 6 months every 2 years. Fill it up and then cancel service, watch them and repeat.
