Will Streaming Services Make Cable Obsolete? by Adeline Salvador on December 6th, 2019

With the rise of streaming services, is cable becoming more obsolete?  More and more consumers are switching over to streaming services for the following reasons: you can watch it anytime and anywhere, you have a wide variety of content to choose from, as well as the ability to share that content with family and friends.

One of the biggest advantages of streaming services is the ability to watch shows anytime and anywhere. With hectic schedules and busy lives, it’s hard to keep up with your favourite shows. Whether you want to watch it live or save it for later, streaming services like Crave allow you to do both. Another perk about streaming services is the ability to watch on the go and offline. It doesn’t matter if you’re hopping on the plane or taking a long commute, you can save your show on your device and watch it whenever and wherever you go. 

Nowadays, Netflix is not the only streaming service that’s accessible to consumers. A lot more companies are jumping in with apps like Prime Video, Crave + HBO, Apple TV+, Disney+,  and for the sports fans, DAZN. With more original shows and movies being released this year, it’s hard not to sign up for these streaming services. Below are some of the top original shows and movies from these services:

1.  Stranger Things

2.  Black Mirror

3.  GLOW

Most households these days are downgrading or cancelling their cable service in exchange for streaming services. Some cable providers offer consumers channel bundles that go as high as $120. Streaming services only range from $5.99 to $19.99 a month and with the ability to share these streaming services to friends and family, you’re saving even more!
