Did 9 Million Cable Subscribers Cut The Cord?

Did 9 Million Cable Subscribers REALLY Cut The Cord?
Survey reports 9 million have cut the cable.
Cable companies: "We don't see it."
Someone's either blind or lying, who is it?
(Hint: you can always trust Comcast. They've never lied to anyone. EVER.)

Note that all they talk about in this piece is internet TV, nobody mentions Free "Wireless" TV with an antenna.

What Can You Do With a Roku?

Several people have asked me recently about streaming media set top boxes. Having a HTPC media computer connected to my LCD TV, I never used one of them. After asking several people their opinions, I decided I would try a ROKU box. In fact, I tried 2 of them: The top of the line Roku 2 XS, and the bargain priced Roku LT. Roku first introduced the streaming set top box to the market, and continues to be the industry leader. Of course, there are plenty of other ways to connect your TV to the internet nowadays, ranging from Apple TV,  Boxee, and Roku, Internet connected TV sets and Blu-ray players. I chose the Roku because of its reputation, access to lots of content, and price. If you're wondering what product you should choose, check out this review of network streaming devices.

If you've decided that a Roku player is for you, you'll need to choose the model that works for your needs and budget.
