People are using Netflix to watch TV programs

July 16, 2012

Brian Anthony Hernandez of Mashable sums up the Neilsen study:

A new Nielsen study reveals 19% of respondents prefer using Netflix to watch TV programs — up 8% since a year ago — instead of movies or both equally.

I would argue that this study revealed very little data of interest. Netflix’s movie catalog hasn’t grownsignificantlyin many, many months. In fact, it has been losing popular titles without adding many. TV shows, however, are really where Netflix is a boon for most TV-watchers. Netflix’s TV program catalog offers multiple seasons of many of the most popular shows over the last several years. How can its movie catalog even compare?
