Comcast will soon have more Internet subscribers than TV

"These trends — increases on the broadband side and decreases on the television side — have been evident in Comcast’s earnings for years amid stiff competition from Verizon and AT&T’s TV services and changes in consumer behavior. Many of Comcast’s customers pay the company for an all-inclusive package of TV, broadband and phone. But the company is rapidly approaching the point where it will have more broadband subscribers than TV subscribers."
