The End of TV?
The cable TV business has had its worst year in 2013. Are families ready to ditch the box? http://www.affordable-online-colleges.net has created an infographic entitled â€śThe End of TVâ€ť detailing how 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, thereâ€™s been a 22.8% growth in cable-dropping. 25% of Charter subscribers are now opting for â€śstreaming onlyâ€ť service, as many devices are now stream-friendly.
Additionally, cable is expensive. In fact, since 1966, thereâ€™s been an increase of 77% in cable service costs. Compared to 7.99 a month for Netflix, itâ€™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, itâ€™s pretty obvious to see why many subscribers are opting for cheaper alternatives.
