10 Reasons Why Streaming Services are So Popular

Streaming services — such as Hulu, Netflix, and YouTube TV — offer
many advantages compared to traditional TV plans like satellite or cable.

They include:
1. Cost Savings – Subscribing to a few streaming services usually ends up costing much less than paying for satellite or cable TV.

2. Bigger Variety of Content – Streaming services maintain huge libraries of TV shows and movies from which to choose.

3. More Original Content – Some streaming services pride themselves on their award-winning original content that’s not available with any other streaming service or on network TV.

4. Less Mindless TV Viewing – Instead of turning on the TV to watch whatever is on or engage in aimless channel surfing, users of streaming services tend to turn it on to intentionally watch a specific show or movie.

5. Lack of Weather Issues – If you now have satellite TV and struggle with spotty service during high winds or heavy rains, you’ll appreciate the fact that streaming services won’t have those issues.

6. Added Convenience – You can watch your programs on any device, whenever and wherever you want.

7. Scalability – Many streaming services allow you to choose the features and functions you want.

8. Personalized Recommendations – You can get viewing ideas based on your profile and interests.

9. Ad-Free Entertainment – With traditional television, a good third of the viewing time tends to be consumed by ads.

10. Simplified Binge-Watching – You can easily binge-watch an entire season of a series, pausing an episode whenever you want and returning at a later time. An essential companion to streaming services is a fast and reliable internet connection. Huxley Communications offers internet plans with download speeds up to 1Gbps.
