    Default [US] Cord Cutting accelerates

    NO BRAINER, and with the upcoming internet constellations (Starlink, OneWeb, Telesat...), ISP competition may actually happen.

    3M Pay-TV Subscribers Cut Service In 2018, Double 2017 Total – Study

    The pace of cord-cutting accelerated in 2018, with the largest pay-TV providers shedding about 2.9 million video subscribers, nearly double the 1.5 million subscriber losses in 2017, according to the latest study by Leichtman Research Group.

    The research firm, which tracks providers covering about 95% of the market, found that gains from virtual MVPD services (aka “skinny bundles”) are not making up for the conventional subscriber losses. That indicates that a growing number of viewers are doing without pay-TV altogether, presumably in favor of lower-cost subscription services like Netflix, Hulu or Amazon Prime Video.
