A new CBC research report says a growing number of Canadians are ditching their traditional television subscriptions. The May 2015 report says more than half of Canadians currently without cable television have "cut the cord," meaning they had a television subscription and cancelled it. Mark Allen, senior director of corporate research at the CBC in Ottawa, says cord cutters are finding other ways to watch their favourite shows and some believe they were paying too much for television. (Allen says whether the number of cord-cutters continues to rise depends on the options Canadians will have to watch television online in the future and the success of the CRTC's "pick-and-pay" and "skinny package" rules for television providers, to be rolled out by December 2016.)
