CNN Money cites a Yankee Group study that predicts one in eight consumers will "cut the cord" and cancel cable or satellite service in 2010.
Going without cable or satellite is unthinkable to many Americans -- just over 90% of U.S. households subscribe to some form of pay TV. But just as mobile phones have replaced many customers' land-line service, Vittore said on-demand Internet video will soon whittle that 90% figure down.
Pay TV is getting more expensive
The biggest reason why customers will cut the cord, according to the study, is the growing cost of pay-TV service. Cable and satellite viewers pay an average of $71 per month, and they receive an average annual price hike of 5%, according to research firm Centris.
Have you or are you planning on cutting the cord this year?
