TV vs. the Stream Team

Article excerpt

Viewing habits show traditional TV networks still reign supreme, but video services like Netflix and Amazon Prime are catching up--especially with younger viewers.

YouGov interviewed about 20,000 U.S. consumers over the age of 18 during a 12-week period ending March 31, to find out which networks and streaming services they watched shows on in the last month. They compared this data to the 12-week period that ended Dec. 31.
