Cable being phased out by accessibility and ease-of-use of online viewing
San Francisco, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 02/21/2013 -- In the last half-decade there has come forth a new opportunity for those who wish to view movies and television that was once unfathomable. That capability is called 'streaming' and it can be done from anyone home computer, as well as many newer mobile devices. Where cable once was the only option, there is now a choice for viewers. WorldTVPC.com has now released an infographic depicting just why streaming has become so popular in contrast to the old-form cable option.
The infographic notes that streaming is becoming evermore popular, according to data from TechCrunch via a survey held in 2012. There was an increase of over 40% when it came to online video viewing from 2010-2011. Netflix, the popular home-viewing site, accounted for over one-third of all streaming bandwidth that was utilized in the same time period.
The infographic points out that a report from the 2012 Digital Future In Focus noted 43.5 billion videos were streamed in December of 2011 within the United States. 105.1 million Americans now view their videos online at least part of the time. That is up from 73.7 million in 2010, according to the information gathered by WorldTVPC.com
When a recent survey asked consumers what would push them to switch over to online-only programming, 43% who responded stated they had already considered, or already had, switched to the wholly online service. The number-one reason for not switching, according to the respondents, was a lack of strong enough internet connection.
It is not simply streaming at home that has risen in the past years, but mobile video streaming as well. While some may think that mobile streaming is likely utilized by youth, it is actual young adults who screw the highest in mobile use. Nearly one-third of adults aged 25-34 use mobile streaming video.
