Tue, Apr. 25, 2017 Posted: 08:30 AM

Statistics have shown that more and more people in America are turning to online streaming for entertainment, which could spark concerns amongst businesses such as cable companies and print media. With people now accessing the internet on the go as well as at home, online viewing and streaming has become hugely popular, with many websites offering entertainment and content that can be streamed with ease.

Viewers are now streaming everything from movies and TV through to the latest news on their computer or mobile devices. This is partly because this type of content is so accessible. For instance, viewers can watch CNN Live Stream online free of charge, so they can keep up with the latest news wherever they are. In addition, there are many sites that offer free access to movies and TV shows, which can be streamed with ease.

More viewing options than ever for consumers

The rising popularity of online streaming for entertainment has occurred for a number of reasons. The first is the increase in the number and quality of mobile devices that we have access to these days. This makes it easy for viewers to enjoy entertainment when on the go as well as when they are at home. Another key factor is the choice of online entertainment that is available these days. This includes many movie and TV sites, news sites, music streaming sites, and more.

With many of these sites providing access free of charge, a lot of people have decided to get rid of services such as cable TV, which is causing concern within that particular industry. The print media industry is also suffering, as many people now go online to stream live news. The quality and speed of broadband access has further increased the popularity of streaming content amongst viewers, as they don’t have to put up with lag and interruptions while they are viewing the content.

Recent statistics have shown that the younger generation in particular is now watching less traditional TV. Many now prefer to access movies, TV shows, and entertainment of their choice by going online and streaming the content. They can even watch on the big screen by simply connecting it up with an HDMI lead, making this an even more viable entertainment option.

The number of people watching TV in the traditional way has been gradually declining over the past couple of years. While older people still tend to rely on traditional media and TV for entertainment, younger people in their teens, twenties, thirties, and forties rely more on modern technology such as broadband, tablets, smartphones, and their computers.

A report released in 2015 showed that 56 percent of viewing by those aged between 14 and 24 years was done online. Since that time, technology has become even more advanced and the number of entertainment sites has grown. This means that even more people in this age bracket are now turning to the internet rather than traditional TV.
