Switched on: Netflix changed how we watch TV

THE way we watch television has changed.

No longer confined to a schedule, consumers can choose what they want to watch, and when, thanks to Streaming Video On Demand (SVOD) services.

Roy Morgan Research released data that showed Netflix was available in one in every 10 Australian homes, reaching more than 2.63 million people aged over 14.

The numbers show Netflix is available in almost 60% of young people's - represented as singles, couples and parents - homes.

On which format do you watch the most content?

This poll ended on 27 October 2015.

This is not a scientific poll. The results reflect only the opinions of those who chose to participate.

Free-to-air's grip on content has loosened to a point they are fast-tracking as many shows as possible, or changing the content they produce or broadcast.

As a result of changing consumption we will see much more live sport and reality programs on FTA.

Foxtel holds the Australian broadcast rights to a lot of content, but they too have had to change the way they treat viewers.

While SVOD services do not always have the latest programs, they have arguably the most content.

WHAT I'M WATCHING

THE series has been cancelled but I just finished the first season of Hannibal.

Based on elements from Thomas Harris' novel Red Dragon, the Bryan Fuller-developed psychological thriller stars Hugh Dancy and Mads Mikkelsen as Will Graham and Dr Hannibal Lecter.

If you have seen the movies you already know who Dr Lecter is, but Mikkelsen is a far chillier Hannibal than Anthony Hopkins managed in the films.

Hannibal features some seriously disgusting scenes and incredibly inventive.. set designs... in which the antagonists killed their victims.

All three season of Hannibal are available on Stan.
