Why live streaming is taking over Screen time has rocketed by 47 percent on smartphones and tablets. We are connected to the internet now more than ever, but at what cost?! It's clear that this trend has taken a toll on traditional cable companies. According to a study done by Survey Monkey, “60% of those that use both cable or satellite AND streaming services say they’re thinking of dumping cable/satellite in the next 12 months.” Even with compelling service bundles created by cable companies like Spectrum or Time Warner, customers are "cutting the cord" and choosing to put their money towards live and pre-recorded video streaming services.
