Netflix Trumps as Preferred TV Viewing Source

The results also show that the popularity of streaming is due to viewers’ interest in time shifting, binge watching and avoiding commercials. In fact, binge viewing is becoming the new norm with nearly half of Baby Boomers, Gen-Xers and the majority of Millennials reporting that they binge watch TV programming weekly.
