Record Numbers Cancel Cable, Satellite TV Service

I am not sure why anyone is surprised to hear that people are canceling their cable in record numbers. The economy is bad, cable service sucks and the internet lets you watch what you want, when you want, with less commercials.

The chief cause appears to be persistently high unemployment and a housing market that has many people living with their parents, reducing the need for a separate cable bill. But it's also possible that people are canceling cable, or never signing up in the first place, because they're watching cheap Internet video.
