Cord cutters and the death of TV

So why are ratings in decline? We’re at the beginning of a major historical shift from watching TV to watching video—including TV shows and movies—on the Internet or on mobile devices. This is going to hurt cable TV providers.

I got rid of my cable four years ago. Haven’t gone back since. Everything I want to watch is already online.

Does that mean Apple should build an Internet connected TV? I’m not so sure, just ask everyone who watches videos on their phones while snuggled in bed. I don’t think they need a big screen to be satisfied.
