Nielsen reported this week that millennials "spend about 27% less time watching traditional TV than viewers over the age of 35," possibly threatening the dominance of cable TV.
An anonymous reader quotes Axios: Streaming service subscribers (free or paid) increased again (68% in 2016 vs. 63% in 2014) and have caught up with the percentage of paid TV service providers (67%) for the first time ever, according to the Consumer Technology Association's new study, The Changing Landscape for Video and Content.
The rise of streaming services represents a shift in consumption habits towards cord-cutting, primarily amongst millennials.
Some other trends are impossible to ignore.
2016 also saw a saw dramatic drops in the use of physical disks -- from 41% in 2015 to just 28% -- as well as another big drop in the use of antennas, from 18% to just 10%.
One of the millennials options.
Of course both of the above are on shady ground and I can't recommend them.

It takes awhile to understand what cord cutters are doing and how they are doing it.

Should you cut the cord?
And the best.
There are so many more resources if you search for them.
Here’s the tipping point. The point of no return for cable companies: Sling TV
The future of cable is bleak if this cord cutting trend continues.
To compete they are going to have to find ways to lower their monthly cost.
Which has not been the trend.
If they don't figure out something the future tech savvy generations may gravitate away from their cable services...
This baby boomer still has cable because it is easy to use and it is something that we grew up with.
We understand antenna TV because we grew up with it.
