Over 1M U.S. cable subscribers cut the cord in 2011, estimates Convergence Consulting. It also thinks U.S. pay-TV providers only had a net gain of 112K subs last year - far less than the 380K estimated by Leichtman Research, which believes a 1.6M drop in cable subs was offset by satellite and telco increases. From 2000-2009, pay-TV providers added an average of 2M subscribers/year. (previously)
