Someday soon maybe all TV will be streaming, wirelessly

Cutting the cord has reached an epic level and the debut of Disney Plus isn't helping. We've just seen the fifth consecutive quarter of record pay-TV industry net losses.

Luke Bouma of says this is only the beginning.

"Comcast, Time Warner, DirecTV are all losing customers right now and that rate of loss is growing."

Bouma says don't stay with cable for the DVR.

"All the features you have with cable are now available online; DVRs, on-demand content, pay-per-view all those things you want are there on services like Sling TV, YouTube TV and more."

If you get your Internet service from cable that's a big cord you can't cut, yet. But Bouma believes it's only a matter of time before wireless 5G connectivity will allow you to cut the final cord.

"Houston is one of the first markets to get 5G home Internet from Verizon; other companies including Dish and T-Mobile and more are looking to launch wireless, home Internet that will bring real competition to the home Internet scene."

A survey shows as of last quarter, 84-million homes in the U.S. are paying for cable – that's down by nearly 10-million subscribers from the end of 2016.
