The Good News:
Cord cutting has become increasingly popular due to outrageous prices amongst cable and satellite bills. A research firm eMarketer says by 2018 cord cutting will grow to 33 million Americans. Most of this is due to the current state of the economy. Cord cutter rates are expected to slowly decrease by 2019 as the economy continues to improve. According to eMarketer, cord cutting growth in 2019 will slow to 18.9% down from the predicted 32.8% growth in 2018
