5 Million U.S Households Without TV

A growing number of U.S Households declared a rupture with TV and cable companies.

According to Nielsen's study, the 5 million “Zero TV” households- as labeled by the Nielsen Co- tend to be younger, single and without children.

Nielsen's study suggests that this new group may have left traditional TV for good. While three-quarters actually have a physical TV set, only 18 percent are interested in hooking it up through a traditional pay TV subscription.

While a portion of this group is tired of paying $100 plus monthly bill, the rest sees TV as a waste of time and a tool to dictate what to watch to the audience. Others see more flexible options available online.

As a mentioned in my previous blog (http://s30276277551.whotrades.com/blog/43583471761)Does TV Has the potential to survive in the future?  Technology flips minds and offer alternatives.

Just as analog TV sets have been replaced by digital flat-screens, the way in which consumers elect to watch programming is changing dramatically. Cable TV and satellite service are now competing with programming delivered across the Internet, often via wireless cellphone connections.
