One in eight to cancel cable and satellite TV in 2010

Watch out: We’re starting to see the beginnings of a trend of people getting rid of their cable and satellite TV subscriptions in favor of Internet streaming. One in eight consumers will eliminate or scale back their cable, satellite or other pay-TV service this year, according to a new study released this week by Yankee Group.

Interesting, the biggest reason why customers will cut the cord, according to the study, is the growing cost of pay-TV service — which is increasing on average 5% a year.

    has anyone heard of this “cancel your cable day” on 1/11/11 ? It is some kind of uprising that if millions of people canceled their cable on the same day it would force them to lower the costs. Cable should not be more then $20. And that would be for everything. Gosh, they nickle and dime you now for every little thing.

    You know it used to be when a 30 minute sitcom came on, you’d get a commercial at the beginning, the middle and the end of the show. Just the other day I watched a very interesting program; I actually timed the commercials of this program. Every 6 minutes I would get a 3 minute commercial. And if any of you can remember back when cable TV cam out; the purpose to purchase cable TV over antenna TV was to NOT have to watch commercials. Now days I’m paying $69 per month and all I get is commercials. More than 1/3 of the channels are INFOmercials. The TV producers should figure out another way to make a profit without the expense of wasting my time. Oh, and another thing, when a commercial does come on every 6 minutes I have to mute my TV volume because the commercial mysteriously gets turned up about 4-5 more notches. I thought Congress enacted a law that the commercials were not to turned up without me turning up the volume? I’m sick of paying to watch commercials. Any suggestions very much appreciated….
