Getting Netflix

​​​​​​​​​​​Probably the single biggest contributor to the Cable Cord Cutting trend has been the launch of the ​Netflix streaming option “Watch Instantly” in October of 2008. Since then the feature has been so ​​popular that  Netflix now accounts for more than 20% of prime time Internet traffic.​
