The Morning After: Streaming overtakes cable TV for the first time

Did you know streaming TV is the future? Nielsen data shows streaming TV viewership in the US surpassed cable for the first time this July. About 34.8 percent of viewing time was spent on broadcasts on internet services – slightly more than the 34.4 percent for cable.

Breaking it down further, Netflix had the largest share (8 percent), thanks largely to demand stranger things 4. Hulu also claimed a record 3.6 percent; Amazon Prime Video grew by 3 percent. YouTube and YouTube TV combined earned 7.3 percent, but no presence in those numbers for Disney+.

The next challenge? Streams have not yet overtaken traditional TV — broadcasts still accounted for 21.6 percent, according to these July numbers. Shouldn’t be too long: Netflix just released a documentary about cats. Broadcast doesn’t stand a chance.

Unlike other electric vehicles that make little noise, the all-electric Charger is loud, just like its gas-powered counterparts. The company has fitted an exhaust pipe to the vehicle, although it doesn’t need one and the only thing it emits is noise. “The Charger Daytona SRT Concept cranks out a 126dB roar that matches the SRT Hellcat,” Dodge wrote in its announcement.
