Streaming technology has really taken over the entertainment industry. TV channels are really falling behind the likes of Netflix and Hulu. These services are so flexible in modes, times, places and so on. They are almost always available on computers, phones and TVs. Cable TV services even strap users down with their annual contracts and termination fees while streaming services only ask for subscription fees that can be cancelled at any time. With affordability, there is no question about which is better. The average cable package is $105 while streaming services range from $8 to $20. Third, when it comes to customer satisfaction, there is always a sweet spot with choice and cable TV is no where near that. Not only do streaming service have many series and movies that can be recommended and liked but there are a lot of different services: Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix, Showtime, YouTube TV and the list goes on.
Cable TV does have some wins. For instance, users can pick from hundreds of channels. Also, sports channels on Cable TV are far more superior to the options on streaming services. They do not require reliable high speed internet. Therefore, in countries with developing infrastructure streaming services might be quite frustrating.
In conclusion, I think the streaming services are in the lead. But what do you think? Which do you prefer?
