OT: 1/5 of TV watching is from streaming - cctop - 02-13-2020

Starting a new thread on cable vs. streaming being discussed in the thread about Colorado's coach.

An article yesterday said that 19% of all TV watching is from streaming services, up from 10% two years ago:

Of the streamers, Netflix accounts for about 1/3 of the hours:

I recommend a Roku box if you want to stream to your TV instead of just watching on your tablet/laptop/cell phone.

If you use an iPhone or iPad, you might want an Apple TV instead of Roku.  It's basically the same as Roku but more expensive and with the ability to send whatever is on your iPhone/iPad screen to your TV, which is nice if you use want to use your cell phone data plan for streaming.

Google Chromecast also is an cheaper than AppleTV option.  I regularly stream women's b-ball games from the Pac-12 app on my IPad to it when the game is only on Pac-12 Bay Area in standard definition.
