In my honest opinion, I believe that Netflix has a good variety of series and movies yet Cable has repetitive channels. For example, if I go to Disney Channel on cable, I can find the same channel in the higher numbering in cable. My point is that cable offers channels that are doubled. In my experience of having cable all of my life, when I try to customize my channels and I tell them to cancel the ones I don’t watch. The cable provider tells me that since I have a packet in my channels; that I cannot customize. In my opinion it is more convenient to use Netflix as it is based on the user’s likings and it is affordable and accessible to the user. I feel like now and days, consumers have the option of subscribing to Hulu and Netflix and save money and not feel limited and be committed to an annual contract. In my household we mostly use WiFi to roam around services such as YouTube and Netlflix; we rarely reach out to cable to watch a movie other than the news. My final thoughts on this is that cable will eventually be used less and less as other services such as YouTube, Netflix and Hulu will become more popular.

I do not have cable because you are right all they play are re-runs all day and I am rarely home. I used to have cable and paid about a hundred dollars a month and I would never be home to watch any TV. We have three televisions in my home and they rarely get used. I have Hulu and Netflix and mostly watch our favorite shows on the living room TV or our laptops or tablets. I am saving money and my kids are not glued to the TV all day. There is so much to watch on Hulu and Netflix that I do not miss Cable.

I love both Netflix and Cable equally even though I use Netflix more often. I used to watch Cable all the time but a lot of the stuff that i like to watch is on Netflix. They have a wide variety of shows and movies to choose from. I think that with all of this advanced technology, Cable will be gone and everyone will turn to Netflix. I think that Netflix is one of the best inventions ever created.

I haven't watch cable television in a long time now. The only time I ever watch cable is if I happen to go outside and there's a television at the restaurant I sit at. The internet has made everything so easily accessible that there's no real reason to pay for cable. I don't see cable or television making a comeback. I can only imagine that Netflix and Hulu will keep growing just like netflix bankrupt blockbusters.
