Cable-TV networks are now facing an onslaught of new competitors in the streaming realm, and their competitors are using the new technologies to their advantage.
While there is little question that Netflix and Amazon Prime have become the leading streaming platforms in the United States, some of the competition is coming from smaller cable companies.
Dish Network has taken advantage of the arrival of Hulu and Prime’s free live TV services, and it’s offering its own free streaming services in its own programming bundle.
Other networks, such as Charter and CenturyLink, are competing with Netflix in the realm of original programming, and some have even launched streaming services.
The problem for cable operators is that the content they offer is increasingly more expensive.
In fact, Hulu and Netflix recently started charging for access to content.
In addition, the cable companies are using their cable networks to offer their own subscription offerings.
These new competitors are looking to grab a slice of the $2.2 trillion streaming industry, and they’re using the platforms to make money off their shows.
For example, the CW and Disney have launched streaming service channels in recent months, while Dish and Charter are offering free online-only TV shows, and the AT&T-owned Bright House Networks has launched an online-first lineup of TV shows.
With all this competition, it’s difficult to keep up with the content.
That’s because cable networks are constantly adapting their offerings to meet the needs of new technologies and new audiences.
But while the platforms are increasingly popular with viewers, they are also facing some challenges as the competition becomes more sophisticated and more sophisticated technology becomes more popular with consumers.
