It may not be official that streaming services are getting the nod from viewers over the once only real choice premium channels, steadily rising trends over the last few years would indicate this to be a most distinct possibility.
“As (subscription video on demand) services have gained momentum, it’s clear that some consumers are trimming their premium TV subscriptions”. The aforementioned quote, by an astute gentleman by the name of Russ Crupnick who is The NPD Group’s SVP is alluding to the undeniable fact that streaming service’s are honing in to become channels in their right through original shows and as a result bringing about a welcome change from a device/TV set watcher’s point of view.
If Netflix is appearing to usurp what well over 10 years was king, HBO, it is true and the change is already underway.
