We all know Netflix has been a game changer with on-demand streaming of movies and TV shows at our very own fingertips. Since the dawn of cable, people have been itching for an innovation with which to choose what they want to watch, when they choose to watch it, free from outside control. People all over are no longer shackled by the autocratic video programming of all the channels and are free to pick and watch whatever TV show or movie whenever they choose. Moreover, to top it all off you only have to pay a low monthly payment and can cancel any time.
Since Netflix has come on the scene our traditional world of cable watching has change dramatically in terms of new competitive services offered. Streaming services can be divided in two separate categories: On-demand content and Live TV.
On-demand services are what most people are most familiar with such as Netflix, Hulu, and Amazon Prime.

Some of the more popular services include Sling TV, Hulu live TV, Direct TV and others.
