Striking back at the media's wallet [Purp]

As Emeril would say: BAM! The Canadians are doing it. 8% of the Canadian population are "cord cutters".

The comments on that article are awesome too.

This is the sound of cable's lunch being eaten.
I cut the TV cord and the umbilical cord when I left the parental home 44 years ago. Now my large-screen computer allows me endless hours of uninterrupted viewing enjoyment of videos, movies and a handful of past and recent TV series, via the net or DVD (in Hi-Fi Dolby 5.1 Surround™ if encoded).

It's a revolution!


Yesterday, Drudge had a link to an article saying ~5M Americans have tuned out from the traditional media too.
