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.

Marketplace is on a mission.

We believe Main Street matters as much as Wall Street, economic news is made relevant and real through human stories, and a touch of humor helps enliven topics you might typically find…well, dull.

Through the signature style that only Marketplace can deliver, we’re on a mission to raise the economic intelligence of the country—but we don’t do it alone. We count on listeners and readers like you to keep this public service free and accessible to all. Will you become a partner in our mission today?
