So will competition from the Internet and other alternate providers push cable off the air? Stelter is not so sure. Traditional patterns of cable usage suggest that people in their twenties and thirties rarely buy cable subscriptions, waiting instead until they reach milestones like marriage or buying homes to opt in. In other words, it's not that unusual that today's youngest generations have abstained from cable so far - but it will be unusual if they continue to stay away once they hit those milestones. We'll have to stay tuned (pardon our pun) to find out.
Brian Stelter, media reporter for the New York Times, says the Internet may reshape cable television as we know it.
