Newsflash! Millennials use technology to get things more conveniently!
I am almost 50 and this has been true since 2006 for me.
Does this actually surprise anyone?
I install cable TV for work and recieve it for free.. I still don’t watch it.
Is this supposed to be surprising?
No shit. Do anyone besides boomers who want to be bombarded with cash for gold commercials watch cable TV?
Is there really a functional difference when you’re talking about how much media someone consumes though?
I’m not a millennial and I watch more streaming than TV. It’s not a millennial thing, it’s a convenience thing for everyone.
In college, I lived in a house of seven (it was surprisingly clean and drama free considering). We bought cable one day and installed it. Over that weekend it was watched by a grand total of two people who didn’t even live in the house to watch sports (which none of the roommates really care about). We decided it wasn’t worth it and cancelled our subscription. But, of course, we all had Netflix accounts.
I watch more reddit gif’s than scheduled TV shows.
Not millennial by a long shot. Never watch tv. It’s AMZN prime nflx or my own Plex server.
Every few years there’s an article like this. “Millennials are killing the cable industry”
But really, who wants to watch TV?
With Netflix, I can watch the shows whenever I want to. I can pause, rewind as many times as I want to catch that line I missed. I can watch on any device I want: computer, TV, phone, etc. There are no commercials and it’s still much, much cheaper than cable.
I can’t understand why anyone would watch TV.
Man this is gonna make you feel old. The author put 18- to 34-year-old as mellennials.. But 18-24 is genz and 25-34 is mellennials.
In other breaking news, water is wet.
Ah yes let me pay $200 a month and have to sit through commercials only to watch the same 5 tv ideas shattered into a thousand different shows of their own.
Netflix is tv though.
The only thing I watch regular cable for is sports but I watch a lot of tv.
Amongst other reasons, Cable providers have constantly been trying to bait and switch for years now.
“Only $15.99 a month!*
*for 3 months then regular fees apply”
Fuck that. Just give it to me straight.
Sometimes I think about going back to Cable, but that hidden fee shit is a major deal breaker.
Yeah I don’t think I’ve watched “tv” in at least 2-3 years. Just various streaming services. Cable is dead.
I stopped watching TV because of the commercials. I absolutely loathe assholes trying to sell me shit.
I watch much more YouTube than tv
Netflix is tv
I only have TV because it is cheaper to not for some reason. That being said, i use it for local news maybe 15 minutes a day, or sometimes background noise if i am cooking or something
Stupid millenniums killing big cable’s ability to overcharge for a crappy product…would be poetic justice if Ajit Pai isn’t already selling off the soul of internet.
I’m a GenXer. The last time I turned my television on was to watch the Super Bowl in 2018. Everything I watch regularly is either streamed (mostly Hulu) or on DVD (at work during lunch because we’re not allowed to stream/streaming sites are blocked).
This GenXer does the streaming thing.
Dumped Dish Network years ago … got tired of $200/month and nothing being on.
Turning on the TV when I’m staying at a hotel gives me PTSD flashbacks to the dark days when I had to watch…. whatever was on. *shudder*
I’m 46 and other than one football game a week when in season, I only watch streaming.
Edit: and it’s not Network produced reality garbage either
TV is still a thing? Huh.
Jokes on them, I cant afford netflix.
