According to a new report by Experian Marketing Services, "cord-cutters" grew by 44 percent in the past four years, with 7.6 million households using broadband for streaming or downloading videos instead of traditional cable or satellite television. The report found that 48 percent of all U.S. adults and 67 percent of young adults watch streaming or downloaded video during a typical week. "While we are seeing the way we view video drastically changing, television is likely to remain the primary device for consumer video; we just are witnessing the transition of the definition of television," states the company.

Re: Cord Cutters Think They're Smart

Sure, there are ways. And few of them are legal.

And soon, you won't be saving $1000/year. The cable companies will come for you, and you'll be paying more for less. And IMO, you'll deserve it.

And it's time to make piracy a felony too, IMO. That's what many of the cord cutters are doing, going to Pirate Bay and other illegal sites for sports.

Can you come across as anymore of a bitter corporate shill?

If you don't like people pirating go F yourself.

No one cares what you think.
