Outrage over new pricing notwithstanding, Netflix continues to slowly dominate the streaming industry. A new study by research firm Parks Associates has revealed that more than a fifth of U.S. broadband homes now use Netflix streaming.

The ever-larger migration to streaming is part of a larger trend of cord-cutting that seems to be taking place. 22% of the Parks Associates survey respondents saying that they have or will scale back their monthly cable costs.

With more than half of the flat-panel TVs sold this year coming internet-ready, and the majority of broadband households owning at least one internet-connected console or device, the gradual demise of the current pay-TV model seems inevitable to many.

Will more and more consumers continue to cut the cable cord in favor of online options? Let us know what you think in the comments.

    I just want to know when we can tell our cable companies to go to H-LL! That will be the BEST day and the best savings in everyone’s lives!

    People aren’t “cutting the cord” because “the cord” is their broadband connection. They’re just dropping the TV service because $7.99 is better than the $39.99 for pay tv service. They can get the networks OTA without much effort (in most areas).
