    • I cancelled cable TV in 2009, and have been internet-only ever since.

      Cord-Cutting Explodes: 22 Million U.S. Adults to Cancel Cable, Satellite TV in 2017

      Winter is here for cable and satellite TV operators.

      American consumers are cancelling traditional pay-TV service at a much faster rate than previously expected, according to research firm eMarketer.

      In 2017, 22.2 million U.S. adults will cut the cord on cable, satellite or telco TV service - up 33% over 2016 - the researcher now predicts. That's significantly higher than eMarketer's prior estimate of 15.4 million cord-cutters for this year.

    • This is why YouTube is eager to become Television 2.0. All of the censorship on YouTube is due to their attempt to make it more "advertiser-friendly" (code phrase for politically correct). It will backfire because people were fleeing TV when they went to YouTube. They will flee YouTube for other video sites so they can see what they really want to see.

    • :shrug: I've long been internet only & pay for Netflix and a good VPN service.

      However the point of the whole attempt to end net neutrality is to fuck this all up... cable providers want to choke streaming to death unless the stream providers pay $$$ for fast service. Even if I were going thru my VPN the ISP could still identify and choke streaming video.

      Go look at the YouTube front page while not logged in and tell us what you see, genius. Ninety percent of the videos are from the same corporate media outlets that people are cutting the cord to get rid of. The few homespun videos are vapid drivel that no one except you and the other idiot dot would find interesting. It's not even a case of MGTOW or skinheads or any of the other horseshit you and the other fuckwit imagine when you hear the phrase "free speech."

      Not everyone wants to give moar money to the (((jews))) who are pushing cultural marxist filth.

      $5/day is nearly $2,000 per year, which is money that can I allocate to moar guns & bullets & body armour & knives for the upcoming civil war.

      Good for you. You have to actually search to find anything interesting these past few weeks, right? The snickering imbeciles who can barely type an English sentence on here don't even miss the kind of videos a thinking person would find worthwhile.

      It's idiotic to create online services that regurgitate what's already on TV. Cable and broadcasting are the most efficient ways to distribute video. Streaming is a huge drain on bandwidth that should only be used if you don't have access to normal channels. Cable companies are right to complain about Netflix and Hulu using too much bandwidth. They're not going to solve that problem by moving all of their TV content to streaming.
