Internet Perfect For Television
Netflix doesn't have to sweat losing its big Starz Play movie library because viewers come to the Internet for their television fixes and Netflix has built up a pretty valuable store of TV selections in the last few months. As of last fall, the streaming service's executives estimated that show watching made up 50 to 60 percent of total viewing and analyst Richard Greenfield puts it even higher at 80 percent, reports The New York Times' Brian Stelter. Meanwhile, viewing of new release movies has gone down from 8 to 2 percent in the last year. And it's not just on Netflix. All over the Internet, TV reigns.
