Aside from missing the VMA’s last night I can’t think of the last time where I felt the need to indulge in some good ass traditional cable television. To sit and flicker through channels for day-time television or to catch my fave drama weekly, my TV is kiiiiiiind of useless. I mean, I use it for my nintendo 64 and blue ray player but it seems like now — for millennials, cable is totally played. Here goes a few reasons why I feel that way…
Who’s tryna pay a stinkin cable bill??
But for real though. Why would I want to pay $50 a month for a handful of channels that I’m not going to watch regularly? That’s excluding wifi as well. Don’t get me wrong, if you got it, do what you want. If I could buy channels like singles from iTunes that’ll be ideal. Maybe perfect even but then I’ll be paying more so for ads. The same ads that I see on social media, radio etc. It’s a lose/lose. To keep it a bean (“💯💯💯💯”) according to MarketingCharts.com it shows us viewing trends from 2011 to the beginning of 2016. We can already see where the pattern is going regardless of missing info from the second quarter…So yeah we’re not that invested anymore.
…which leads to my next point.
