ow families are spending their TV viewing hours.
Not only is viewership down, but 5 million people ended their cable/broadband subscription between 2010 and 2013. Additionally, since 2013, there’s been a 22.8% growth in cable-dropping. 25% of Charter subscribers are now opting for “streaming only” service, as many devices are now stream-friendly.
Additionally, cable is expensive. In fact, since 1966, there’s been an increase of 77% in cable service costs. Compared to 7.99 a month for Netflix, it’s no surprise that subscribers are switching at a rapid pace. There are also other options available that take the place of the ancient runny-rabbit ear days. You can now get a sleek, streamlined antenna, a set-top box (With wifi), a DVI to HDMI cable, or a Roku, a device that streams online content straight to your TV.
With so many options on the market, it’s pretty obvious to see why many subscribers are opting for cheaper alternatives.
