Analysts see lots of cord-cutting talk, but not much action

Consumers are showing a lot of interest in over-the-top services, but aren't doing much actual cord cutting, according to a panel of analysts at the BroadbandTVcon in Santa Clara, Calif. While 25 percent of those polled in a Horowitz Associates survey said they are considering making the jump from pay TV to all-OTT, only 4 to 5 percent of respondents who live in non-pay TV households said they don't subscribe to pay TV because they have online video alternatives.
