There seems to be room enough around the table for cable, satellite and streaming video, if a new report is to be believed. UK-based consulting firm Futuresource claims that cord-cutting due to SVOD services like Netflix is almost negligible.

The report states that SVOD will be responsible for less than 5 percent of cable and satellite subscription cancellations over the next two to three years.

Carl Hibbert, head of broadcast, content and services at Futuresource, said the following about his firm’s findings:

“Although the Netflix service has been a major disruptive force, driven by high-profile tie-ins with connected CE device manufacturers and streaming deals with studios, its direct impact on the pay-TV industry has been minimal,”

Has Netflix, Hulu Plus, Amazon Prime or another service enticed you to cut the cable cord?

    I cut the cord years back. 95% of what is on TV is crap. What I do want I can get it on DVD when it comes out. Are watch it on NetFlix and HULU.
    No need for the cord!

    I have never paid for cable and I don’t have it now, nor do I see any reason to pay for what is offered. Hulu, Redbox, Prime etc make cable obsolete as far as I am concerned and definitely over priced when compared to the other services. I think many people have not cut the cord because they have to have cable in order to get their local news stations, but if they have to cut anything due to economic pressures I am sure they will be surprised at how much they can still watch without paying cable as long as they can afford internet. It will take some time but more people will cut the cord when they have viable work around solutions that are available to them once they understand their options. We are spoilt for choice at this time in history, so I hope more people will discover and use their options.
