Apple TV Overtakes iPad In Terms Of Netflix Viewing

Just as cellphones are exploding, so is the consumption of digital media. Netflix is well on their way to taking over the content world, and following a very nice quarterly report, the company also revealed one other little nugget of interesting information. The company wrote the following: "Apple TV has done very well for us, and in just four months has passed the also-growing iPad in Netflix viewing hours."


That's really impressive, and also very telling to how frequently people are using their Apple TV boxes. It wasn't long after launch that Apple announced that one million of the new-generation boxes had been sold, and obviously people are using them like crazy. The iPad was hailed as a fantastic media consumption device, and one of the most highly anticipated apps was the Netflix app for iPad.


But in just a few months, the Apple TV now trumps that. We have to wonder what the future of big cable is in a world that is becoming increasingly obsessed with set-top boxes. Have you given up on cable yet? Are you watching entirely too much Netflix for your own good?

As much as i'm not an apple person.... that tiny device is beautifully engineered... It sucks that the CRTC has imposed some serious limitations to ISP. if any canadians reading this.... UBB (usage based billing) is the devil.

Please sign this petition. Bell is making even more money, and services like apple tv, netflix are A LOT higher thanks to strict bandwidth caps.

Well the Apple TV using more Netflix hours than the iPad isn't really a shock. Which would I rather watch a movie on, a little sub 10" screen or my 52" screen/110" projector with 1500w of 7.2 surround sound? Oh yea, that is such a hard choice. If it comes down to it, I got a 7" screen and 5.1 surround sound in my car.

Yes, I've given up on cable since I moved in my new place last summer. As long as the cable companies fight tooth and nail "a la carte" services and force their customer to get a bunch of channels that we don't want just to get the premium stuff and ubber HD channels, I don't bother.

That said, I tried NetFlix and closed my account before the Holidays. Companies that lack customer service doesn't get my money. As long as there's torrents...

Today's market forecasts a lot of different direction. Will streaming TV be the future? Are set top boxes out? I recently installed DISH Networks Remote Access app and couldn’t be happier. With DISH Networks Sling technology I can stream live TV, on demand content, and all my DVR recordings all in HD! Best of all, I can stream it anywhere to my iPad. I work for DISH, and once i had this installed I had no hesitation in dropping my Netflix.
