There's your demographic challenge. Kids growing up today have rarely, if ever, encountered the mass appeal of television that most adults know, of what it was like to watch a popular show one night and talk about it at school or work the next morning.

And "video," by the way, is more and more what I think we need to be talking about, not "TV."

That's something I haven't personally done much since 2001, when a PVR came into our house. We found ourselves recording material and playing them back and rarely catching things live.

Actually, what I think should most worry conventional TV companies is not so much cord cutting, but not getting the cord in the first place. Research shows clearly that young adults are most likely to look to online sources for video entertainment, and are foregoing the cable options that they knew while growing up. about shifts in the market.

A few of my friends for a while have been boastful (if not a little smug) about the fact that they no longer watch TV. Yet, I notice from Facebook that they're keeping up with television shows, from Downtown Abbey to Breaking Bad.

The current issue of the New Yorker has a long article by Ken Auletta, who's been writing about the TV industry for much of his career, on how Netlfix turned into a power broker in the entertainment biz.

about film being art and TV being furniture came to mind.)

But wait a second I read a report just a week or two ago about brand new research that shows "cord cutting" is a bit of a media myth.

Why? Well, "watching TV" for a lot of people has a specific meaning, namely sitting down to watch live television on a set in front of you.

PVRs are now common, as is on demand video, so much so that I'm almost startled when I can't find a popular show on demand. the original binge watchers.)

"Well, yeah but you're still watching it," I replied.

Here's a factoid: Time Warner, the behemoth of the American cable industry, has lost more customers than it's signed up every month since early 2009. Customer churn in the cable industry is not uncommon, but it has to be worrisome for any company that the base is not at all stable.

In other words, if television was a common experience, video is an individual one. A show may be a show, but how we perceive and enjoy it can be quite varied.

What gives? "Oh, we got rid of a television," one friend told me.

Cutting the cord

Well, not exactly; I'm sure all of us anecdotally know somebody who has given up cable in favour of watching video through alternate means. I know a bunch, truth be told.

Just not, I should have added, on a TV set. Instead, they're using another kind of screen.

Those shows are still being watched, just differently, and in personalized ways.

But the overall picture is probably not as apocalyptic as a lot of tech articles and blogs have made it out to be. My own informal survey shows that many people have indeed been supplementing their various sources of video entertainment.

As I write this, our family is settling down for the evening, and the discussion is about finding something all of us can enjoy Nike Air Vapormax Anthracite on TV. It looks like it will be believe it or not an episode of "Fantasy Island, "the campy show my wife and I described to our incredulous son. It's on Netflix. There's also a sitcom waiting on the PVR.

It's through those anecdotes that stories get generated and trends seem to emerge, and while I'm not so sure that cord cutting is as widespread a phenomenon as some pundits have suggested, I think there's something to it.
