I think the numbers a skewed by the fact the elderly watch more TV. Higher numbers of cable users equals less of an overall percentage of plug pullers. The younger generations will stop paying for interweb service if they live in a wifi free area or sponge off a hot spot on a regular basis.
Me thinks more people pulled the cable plug last year. When I cancel my cable I'll use up my monthly 250GB on streaming video.
Simple. The people who AREN'T.
Yeah, I'm still not following. The general population has increased about 6% over the period shown in that graph. The number of people paying for TV has increased about 40%. So the number of people who aren't paying for TV decreased substantially.
Yes, now. If this trend starts, the numbers will show it. Until then, I remain unconvinced.
It's already starting, but it's going underreported...
Stop right there. It doesn't have to be "reported" to show up in the number of TV subscribers. That number is growing faster than the population. If that stops, then the trend you're predicting might have started. But until then, it's all speculation.
It's already beginning. Comcast lost nearly 400,000 cable subscribers last year according to this:

Dish Network is no better than Comcast or any other cable company when it comes to channels.
I agree with that but what Dish is doing with technology is amazing. I said this before... their Hopper DVR is the best DVR going outside of Windows Media Center. They are promoting the PTAT feature the commercial skip and the built in Sling. They know every provider has the same channels so their upping their game with their DVR.
My nephew who is a Junior at Ohio State doesn't have any type of cable subscription. He was over the other night and checked out our Dish system with two Hoppers and sling built in. He loved it and it thinking about joining. I think what he likes is the convenience and the Sling. Those crazy kids and their iPads. :blob1:
