Cable television is simple, easy, and provides the variety you need. You can turn on cable TV any time of the day and find something to watch. Plus, with so many channels and a helpful guide to everything airing, you will surely find something for everyone. We love cable television due to its simplicity. Everyone knows what channel to click to for the news or cartoons, and we all know our favorite Friday night lineup. There is also much to be said about the joy of waiting for the highly anticipated day of the week when the next episode of your favorite show releases. 


Television streaming has opened up many doors we never knew were possible in the entertainment industry! You can now watch just about any show or movie from anywhere. While we have the old reliable streaming services such as Netflix and Hulu that offer a wide variety of everything, more niche streaming platforms allow you to watch specific genres or even independent shows and films. One of the best things about streaming is that you don’t have to wait for a specific time for your favorite show to be on – you can literally watch it whenever and from wherever you are. Streaming has also led to binge-watching a show, which means you can sit down and watch literally every episode of your favorite show in one sitting.
