ABSTRACT
5 Forget "cord cutting" (nixing pay TV), "cord shaving" (buying smaller bundles) and "cord nevers" (people who have never paid for pay-TV services). "Cord cheaters" (those who share passwords) are the "most significant cause" of declining pay-TV subscribers, says Jefferies analyst Mike McCormack. Experts say piracy is a growing problem for cable and phone companies too.
