decimated- latin in its origin meaning removal of a tenth.
the particular group would be devided into tenths and each group would use some method to select which group would be executed. it didnt matter if everyone in that group was culpable or to what degree their responsibility their parts were. if they were selected the entire group was executed (while those responsible may have also gone free, but usually not) as a warning to the rest.
given the 'sue your customers into the ground' attitude media seems to have these days, decimated may very well be an apt term... to apply to their customer base.
capture card that can pick up OTA signals and record it. problem solved.

id say its probably a bit low and also doesnt cover people like me.
the girlfriend pays for the broadcast part of the bill and we split the internet part because i dont watch cable tv. we have one converter which is in her office and i only make use is online/OTA.
because of her insistence on having the broadcast service, i cant be counted as a cord-cutter.... now think for a moment how many people are in my situation? how many kids are in households that only touch the TV for their game console and/or media center and never watch the broadcast side from their provider? there is actually a lot of them out there and none of them get counted as cord-cutters.
