Cable TV, going the way of newspapers

• Christian Science Monitor
For the first time in over 20 years, I don’t have TV access to CNN, ESPN, or TBS. My wife and I dropped our expanded cable package, due to a surplus of content we get online and from Netflix. We now pay about 10 bucks a month for little more than the old three-letter networks, a heap of home shopping channels, and C-SPAN. 
We’re not alone in ditching expanded cable. Cable TV sellers will likely endure misery in the coming years similar to that visited upon US newspapers in the last few decades. In fact, the decline has already started, and to survive, cable providers are going to have to become much more nimble.
