Netflix is the most popular movie and TV show streaming service, beating out Amazon’s service, Hulu, and even YouTube by a landslide, but there’s another streaming service that beats all four of those combined, and also additionally including HBO and ESPN’s viewer numbers.
Video games. People are live-streaming themselves playing video games, and it’s so popular that there is more of that happening at any given time than people streaming movies or TV shows.
