It’s really hard to feel sorry for any of the major cable providers. Shout out if you absolutely love your cable company. Anyone? So, when Time Warner Cable announced a significant drop in subscribers and a corresponding decline in their earnings last quarter, you didn’t see a lot of crocodile tears. In fact, anyone who’s spent an hour or five dealing with cable customer service will likely feel at least a bit of glee to hear about TWC’s corporate woes. But what does this say about how we’re all watching TV?
A recent survey by Leichtman Research Group indicates that one in five homes now has a DVR. I get that. I don't know where I'd be without mine. I never would have been able to keep up with Lost and I never would have enjoyed Desperate Housewives if TiVo weren't recording it while I was tuned to Sunday Night Football.
