US Pay-TV Dips As Antenna-Only TV Services Rise To 15% Of Broadband Households

In its latest round-up of the strength of cord-cutting in the country, 360 View: Entertainment Services in US Broadband Households, Parks found that antenna-only usage has steadily increased since 2013 to reach 15% of high speed Internet homes, and observed declining pay-TV satisfaction in each of the last three years. In 2016, twice as many subscribers downgraded (12%) their pay-TV service than upgraded (6%) it, while the likelihood of non-subscribers adopting pay-TV has declined since 2012. Only a half as many so-called cord-nevers adopted pay-TV in 2016 (2%) as in 2015 (4%).
