    I live in Upstate New York and I am dedicated Streamer!! It was great to Cut the Cord ✂ 🔌❗

    Massachusetts here! Just cut the cord this past month and couldn’t be happier.

      I live in MA too- went with DTVN in October! Also couldn’t be happier (well, when DTVN cloud DVR goes online…) I am lucky to be able to switch back and forth between Comcast and Verizon Fios for Internet- both offer $39.99 for new users for one year – I will switch back and forth every year! If I were to go beyond one year, both services shoot up to $85.

    This could be because the Eastern part of the US has so many big cities and thus good internet services. In the rest of the country where it’s much more rural, there is a lower population density and internet speeds mostly suck.

  • Carl Collie

    That is some strange data. I find it hard to believe that some of those small states have more subscribers than California or Texas. West Virginia I can see as there are probably large areas where the only option ins streaming or satellite. But you would think if that was the case they would not have internet either.

    • Joey Wolowitz

      Not the total subscribers, just “the most average number of hours viewed per user in each state.”

  • TV Barrington

    Although I recently cut the cord, I wonder how many of these streamers are cord cutters, or if the state rankings are also including folks that still have cable TV.

    The reason that I cut the cord is because the monopolistic lack of cable choices (only Comcast), and this is excluding the choice of having satellite. Streaming SlingTV, Hulu, and Netflix allows me more freedom, and saves me money.

    However, I do have my worries of how the FCC rolling back most of, or totally eliminating, the net neutrality will affect my streaming, data caps, and cost of internet.

    It’s just so expensive to live there that people look for way to cut costs.
