How Web Streaming Has Evolved Over Time (Infographic)

At the end of 2010, the cable industry saw a record-breaking 711,000 subscribers give up cable television. Just in the last quarter, from April-June, eight of the nine largest subscription-TV providers in the U.S. lost another 195,700 subscribers.

Here is a look at how far web streaming has come over time.
