Cord-Cutting Continues: MoffettNathanson reports that the number of traditional pay TV subscribers in the US fell by 2.7% in the second quarter of 2017, marking the fastest rate of decline ever recorded by the firm. That was equivalent to a loss of about 941,000 pay TV subscribers.

Healthy Apps: New data from Parks Associates found that more than one-fifth of US households with broadband used a fitness, diet or wellness app of some kind. In addition, nearly four in 10 users of such apps were likely to recommend them to family or friends.

Privacy Problem: Nearly 90% of US mobile app users are worried about security when they sign up with a new app, according to data from business-to-business (B2B) research firm Clutch.
