This year Netflix has gained a lot more paid subscribers. In the first quarter of 2017, Netflix has gained 50.9 million subscribers which is more than people who do cable TV. People who subscribe to cable TV are declining like crazy.
Check out this interesting article:
This doesn’t surprise me at all ’cause Cable TV is pretty much garbage these days. It’s not just liberal politics, it’s more than that. It’s just that there is nothing good on TV anymore.
I remember in the 90’s cable TV was pretty hot. When I was a kid growing up, I would watch a lot of cable TV. I was obsessed with it, lol. I would watch all my favorite shows like Star Trek: The Next Generation, The A-Team, Tales From The Crypt, Batman (RIP Adam West), MacGyver and things like that. I would also watch a lot of music videos on MTV. Those were the days when cable TV used to be something special.
Nowadays, cable TV is nothing but junk. Nothing good on TV anymore and this is why streaming services is a popular thing right now.
Once in a while on TV a good show will come around… shows that I liked: “Friday Night Lights”, “Dexter” and “Breaking Bad”. Shows that are on currently that I like are “Vikings” on the History Channel and I love “Game of Thrones”. I don’t have HBO, I just wait for the “Game Of Thrones” DVD sets ’cause I have them all so far.
There are some good shows that come around once in a while but most TV these days are junk. Nothing but stupid reality shows, dumb sitcoms on the weekends, no good primetime drama shows anymore, too many dumb singing competitions, dumb cooking shows, nothing but stupid political news shows and even the premium movie channels are all garbage. The premium movie channels like HBO, Cinemax, Showtime, etc. are all no good anymore. Except the only good show that HBO has right now is “Game of Thrones” ’cause I fucking love that show! It’s my favorite TV show right now. Other than that, I hate most cable TV.
I only subscribe to two streaming services and they are “WWE Network” and “Netflix”, that’s good enough for me. I thought about getting rid of Netflix but I’m gonna keep it. I only watch TV at night to relax. I don’t watch TV during the day.
Another reason for cable TV decline is that it’s getting so expensive, ya know? Monthly cable TV prices are getting so high. Streaming services much cheaper.
This new doesn’t surprise me at all!
