It appears in the war of cable versus streaming, streaming is winning. It is increasingly gaining popularity among the younger generations. The older generations still use cable, but once the younger groups become the majority they will kick cable to the curb and streaming will reign supreme.

 

The biggest reason cable TV loses customers is because of the cost. There is a big difference between these two options. For example, subscriptions to Netflix, Hulu and Amazon Prime are all less than $20 and, if subscribed to all three, a customer will have a multitude of shows and movies to choose from for a lower price than cable TV. Although streaming requires a high-speed internet connection, it’s still generally cheaper than the alternative. The younger generations are learning to be smarter with money and spend it on services they use daily. For them, cable TV is not worth the cash.

 

Another big difference are the advertisements. Streaming services usually have none or limited advertisements, while cable TV is filled with commercials. These commercials interrupt the show and cause customers to lose interest or get up and do something else. Streaming services keep customers glued to their screens by not having any commercials to break up the show.

 

Streaming services also allow users to see the entire season of a show at once. Now that this is an option, they don’t want to wait a whole week to see the next episode of a show. The current generations want things to happen immediately, including having access to all the episodes of their favorite television shows.
