Props to Seattlepi for putting together this comprehensive guide to Cord Cutting. There's been a lot of talk lately about whether cord cutting is really happening or not. I can't really speak to any national trends but I can say with certainty that the majority of my freinds do not have cable. I cut the cord over a year ago and have never looked back.
Even with all the new boxes coming out (Boxee Box, Apple TV, Google TV etc...) for me the best way to go is still just a mac mini plugged into my TV. I like and use Boxee, but there's no way I'm paying $250+ for a box that runs nothing but boxee.
But if takes boxes like these for the mainstream to start getting web video on their TV's, then so be it. For web-video producers like me, that can't happen soon enough!
