Cable Consumers Keep Cutting The Cord. Who To Blame? 19 August 2015

Cable Customer Cord Cutting

 

We’ve all known that the Titanic of cable companies was going to be crashing into the iceberg of OTT video services soon enough, but it looks like there are some pretty huge cracks forming already. As it stands, cable subscriptions are being dropped at a pretty fast clip, and it doesn’t look like it’s a trend that will be reversing any time soon, if ever. Hope your cord-cutting scissors are as sharp as can be.

Wall Street research firm Pacific Crest has put their efforts to figuring out just how well (or not) cable subscription services have fared in the past six years, and things are looking more dour than ever. The rate of people dropping cable has been solidly steady in recent years, as the 88% of households in 2010 with subscriptions to companies like Comcast and Time Warner Cable has dropped down to 80% in 2015. So almost 2% of subscribers are dropping cable per year, on average. Yikes.

According to Business Insider, the top 8 cable providers saw 463,000 subscribers drop their services, with around 141,000 dropping plans at the same time last year. The year over year growth in cable subscribers has been a see-saw in years past, with the upticks being just enough to stop company execs from freaking out, but instead of something like a 2% growth dropping to a 1% growth, the first half of 2015 has seen that number topple down into the negatives, and there was a .5% decline in overall subscriptions.
