Why so Successful?
Streaming not only draws people in but also keeps them hooked, and many have wondered why. It is convenience, absolutely: open the service on your computer, phone or TV, and the entire content is there, just a click away and it’s available any time – no channel surfing, no prerecording, no pre-empting, and no commercial breaks. You can start watching a show on your living room TV and finish the season on your laptop while waiting for your flight at the airport.
Interested in multiple shows or films? Create a personalized watchlist where you can find them all at a later time. Stopped watching something? Come back to it later and don’t worry, the platform remembers where you pressed pause.
You liked something, maybe you even rated it via the service? An algorithm will make note of that and offer you a personalised list of suggestions based on your past viewings, as well as push the newest additions to the library to the top of the main page.
And when you consider the prices of video rental and cinema tickets, there is no doubt that streaming services are still extremely affordable. While cinema absolutely offers a certain experience that even your home theatre can’t compete with, it’s also undeniable that ticket prices have recently begun surpassing monthly subscriptions to a streaming service.
