    Many people resort to online streaming to avoid having to sit through commercials on TV channels.

    Netflix is one example of a streaming service that is on the rise and taking over traditional TV channels, as it's easily accessible, features a large collection of movies and series and is not very expensive. 

  • 4 They can watch them anywhere

    Streaming services allow viewers to watch series wherever they are since they can use their laptops or mobiles to stream shows.

    People who don't want to pay money to watch a certain show stream them online.

    If someone misses an episode that is screened on TV, they can easily find it online and stream it. 

  • 11 To watch previous seasons

    Online streaming allows people to watch all the seasons of the shows they're interested in, unlike TV that only shows a number of episodes or even one episode every week.
