This is to be expected with services like Netflix, HuluPlus, and all their clones - reduced dependance on TV. At least in the US, if you have a Netflix and HuluPlus subscription you basically have ZERO need for cable/satellite television - all your movies and major TV shows are covered and local news stations you can watch "over the air" as it is required to be freely accessible for emergency broadcasts.
