We knew it would happen eventually. And now Netflix is more popular than cable networks. This even after Netflix split their streaming and DVD offerings and 810,000 customers left.
In the past three months, users have watched more than 4 billion hours of television on its streaming services. This is more than people watched on any cable television network. I wonder just when the cable compnaies will finally cease to exist.
The 4 billion is a global number. If 88 percent of subscribers are in the U.S., which is 28.1 million people, that means that a normal U.S. subscriber is watching 87 minutes a day. With Arrested Development coming very soon, and other original programming, this number will only grow.
