Tom Rutledge, the CEO of cable TV company Charter Communications, told Wall Street this week he was “surprised” that 1.3 million of his 5.5 million customers don’t want TV.

They just want broadband internet. They’re actively NOT subscribing to TV in addition to the web.

“Our broadband-only growth has been greater than I thought it would be,” he added.

Rutledge is not alone. A lot of people are having difficulty processing the idea that now it’s so easy to watch shows or movies online, whenever you want, that cable and broadcast TV just aren’t something that everybody wants anymore.
