TTD: Americans Cutting The Cord On Pay TV? Uh, Nope.

"Given all the hoo-hah over Hulu.com, TV.com and various other Web-based video sites, you’d think Americans were yanking out their pay television subscriptions in droves. But apparently, that’s not actually happening.
Bernstein Research analyst Craig Moffett notes that the U.S. based cable, telco and satellite TV companies that have reported Q4 results to date added an aggregate 441,000 subscribers in the quarter:
AT&T +264,000
Verizon +303,000
DirecTV +301,000
Comcast -233,000
Time Warner Cable -119,000
Charter -75,000
The same set of company’s added an aggregate 396,000 in the year ago quarter: in other words, as a group they are modestly picking up steam, rather than accelerating."
