Netflix movie streaming takes back stage to TV
Netflix users' taste for movies versus TV are changing. According to data released by Nielsen today, users who were most likely to stream movies dropped by 6 percent from last year, while those who preferred streaming TV rose by 8 percent.
Still, overall, the video streaming service's users like to watch movies -- 47 percent of users are currently most likely to stream movies while 19 percent will stream TV. The remaining users watch both movies and TV equally.
Netflix announced for the first time last week that it had reached a new milestone with its Watch Instantly service -- more than 1 billion hours were streamed in just one month. The record before this was 2 billion hours streamed in three months.
