On Wednesday’s Marketplace, in an interview about the Supreme Court’s decision ruling against the Aereo TV service, Marketplace Tech host Ben Johnson mentioned he is a “cord cutter.” Meaning, he gets his television and video content without paying a cable bill.
A survey out from the market research firm NPD group says the average cable bill now sits right near $90 per a month and we expect it to hit $200 per month by the end of the decade. $200. A month. For television.
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?
