While the vast majority of U.S. residents own televisions and watch them regularly, more and more people are opting to toss their cable plans and use other devices for entertainment.
A new report by Nielsen finds that those people who have elected to go "Zero TV" have more than doubled since 2007. Currently, more than 5 million people don't have broadcast television in their home, while in 2007 just 2 million didn't.
"These households don't fit Nielsen's traditional definition of a TV household, but they still view video content," Nielsen wrote. "When it comes to video content, a growing amount of these households are using other devices."
According to Nielsen, 67 percent of these cord-cutters get content on other devices; 37 percent use their computers, 16 percent use the Internet, 8 percent use smartphones, and 6 percent watch on tablets.
Other reports over the last year have shown that many TV owners also use their tablets and smartphones to supplement whatever they are watching. According to a report by Forrester last year, 85 percent of U.S. tablet owners use their device while watching television.
