One of the bigger comments debates on NewTeeVee this week revolved around cord-cutting, and whether it’ll still be “a myth,” like Nielsen says it is currently, in five years’ time. Heck, our good buddy Mark Cuban even came by to tell us that we’re wrong. (Again.)
Nielsen’s research above indicates that rather than declining, the number of cable subscribers has in fact increased dramatically over the last two years, whereas the broadband-only subscriber increase was minimal. But do those stats reflect our incredibly smart and attractive NewTeeVee readers? That’s what we want to know. So are you a cord-cutter? And if you’re not, to what degree do you watch online content anyways? Answer below, and feel free to tell us what you think in the comments!
