The rise of Streaming

Streaming

Everyone will have heard of streaming – the process in which people can consume media without having to download it or physically possess it, like a DVD, for example. In this age, virtually the whole world used streaming which makes it one of the fastest-growing industries out there. It may surprise many to learn just how relatively young the industry is as it was only really in the last decade that the industry began to explode with giants like Netflix coming on to the scene. However, there will be many wondering how exactly this happened, and what it means for the future of entertainment.

Many will remember a time where streaming wasn’t the main mode of entertainment. This is not to say that everyone in the world uses streaming predominately now either. There will always be people who appreciate the tangibility of physical media and this is why many enjoy having libraries in their homes. This focus on physical media used to be the order of the day for the whole world, but this was not a result of choice. It was because the technology was limited at the time, and the newest innovation was technology like Blu-Ray. When streaming was first introduced, it changed everything forever and the world can no longer go back to how it was before.

It is clear to see that many people prefer streaming over other forms of consuming media. This analysis makes sense too as one must only look at the atmospheric growth of the industry to get an idea of its popularity across the world. Streaming just offers many benefits that appeal to many, but it can also be said that these benefits come at a cost. For example, a rise in streaming media such as films is great for the consumer as they can see more content for less. However, the film industry relies on ticket sales to thrive, and if no one is no longer visiting their local cinemas as they can stream whatever they want instead, it is clear to see the impact that this may have.

The rise that the streaming industry has seen mirrors other industries in the entertainment sector, such as gambling. This is likely because this industry has seen a surge in online play as sites like Cloud bet allow people to win money from the comfort of their homes. In the same way, streaming allows people to watch the newest shows and films all without leaving the sofa. It is this convenience that appeals to so many people and is something unmatched by things like cinemas.

Of course, another reason why streaming is becoming so popular is because of costs. TV provider packages can often be insanely expensive while the cost of paying a monthly membership fee for a streaming service pales in comparison. Given this then, it only makes sense why many people prefer streaming over anything else.

There is no doubt that streaming will only continue to grow in future years. The future of industries such as film is less certain, and this industry will need to think of how it will stay relevant in years to come.
