Cable TV is dying

Cable TV has degenerated into one big reality TV mush. Channels that once had their mandate clearly spelled out for them (History channel) now desperately throw ANYTHING on the screen in the hope of ratings.

Older TV-raised diehards like myself shake my head, now question the value of subscribing to cable TV, and watch stuff online. Younger people, who never had a cable subscription fail to see the value of ever subscribing. And watch stuff online.

And now for the first time, cable television subscriptions fell in the United States in the last two quarters, a trend some attribute to California-based Netflix.

Good riddance cable TV.

You stopped caring. We stopped caring.
