Streaming in the US – level 2

21-11-2019 07:00

Digital streaming is becoming more and more popular with Americans. Reports say that last year, people paid $16.3 billion more for digital streaming services than in the previous year.

Companies like HBO or Netflix convinced people to cancel cable or satelite TV and pay for streaming videos. Currently, more people pay for Netflix than cable or satelite TV.

Now, there are new players on the scene, with Disney and Apple. Disney is already one of the biggest companies in the streaming business. Experts say that Netflix did the hard work and prepared the ideal situation for other companies, that know how to benefit from them.

Difficult words: stream (to send audio or video over the Internet without any breaks), convince (to make somebody believe in something), benefit (to profit from a situation).

You can watch the original video in the Level 3 section.
