Cord cutting is steadily progressing despite promising early Q4 numbers

Early on in the fourth-quarter earnings season, promising results from Comcast and Time Warner Cable made it look like the hype around cord cutting wasn't justified.

Analyst Jan Dawson, writing for Variety, says now that all the numbers are in, it's clear that the cord-cutting trend is continuing at pace. Dawson says that increases for cable TV net customer adds are due to telcos easing off promotional pushes for TV services like AT&T's U-verse and Verizon's FiOS, and seeing a resultant decline in net customer adds.
