Cable and satellite TV subscriptions are down, but people aren’t necessarily watching less TV…they’re just watching it differently.

Just because people aren’t paying for cable or tuning into free local channels doesn’t mean they aren’t watching at all. ¬†According to the Nielson Company, the number of U.S. homes that don’t get traditional television service continues to increase.

Three-quarters of the estimated 5 million homes that don’t get TV signals are still using their TVs, but mostly for games, DVDs or services like Netflix or Apple TV. ¬†During the first three months of 2012, the average consumer spent about 2% less time watching traditional TV.
