More than 60% of U.S. adults currently subscribe to at least one streaming media service, and more are coming to market every day. Further, consumers expect their content on anything from a smartphone to a 65-inch, 4K screen with connectivity ranging from 1Gbs service to two bars of coverage while driving.
