US cord-cutting accelerates as Netflix surpasses cable for subscribers in 2018

Specifically, 28% of older consumers (50+) have cut the cord, up from 19% in 201 and 61% of consumers aged 50 and above access TV content from the internet, compared with 48% just two years ago. Yet at the same time, younger audiences were more likely to report a healthy relationship with their pay-TV provider: 22% of consumers ages 25-34 report being “in a committed partnership” versus 16% of those 50 and above. – Joseph O’Halloran, Rapid TV News »
