Killing Cable

Steve Henn Aug 30, 2010

I moved coast to coast about six months ago and I still haven’t hooked up a new cable connection in my house. Okay – given I’m a public radio geek – but I don’t miss it – at all. I’m still streaming shows I like. So the last few months have made me wonder, could cable be entering a death spiral? Turns out I’m not the only one asking the question. MG Siegler at TechCrunch has an overview of Silicon Valley’s assault on the idiot box.  Or you can just watch this ad by Logitech.
