Cord cutting overall has reportedly topped 30 million subscribers. While this growth has been strong, it is still very interesting to see that most cord cutters still do not use a live TV streaming service.
For years,there has been a lot of talk about cord cutting trying to replicate cable TV. For some, this is very true; however, it looks like most cord cutters seem to be happy with their on-demand services and other devices like antennas.
Many pay-TV providers had hoped a streaming service would offset losses from cord cutting. For now, it has helped, but it has yet to be a 1 for 1 replacement for cable TV. Most cord cutters are not interested in a live TV streaming service.
