One billion hours! That’s a lot of time to spend watching video online. And did we say that it’s one billion hours per day. And for just one site. Of course, it helps that that site is Youtube.
The Google-owned video streaming site has hit this landmark, which is a 1,000-percent increase in under just four years. It uses algorithms generated by artificial intelligence (AI) to recommend videos to viewers around the world.
It is no wonder then that cable television is struggling to keep subscribers and free-to-air television is rapidly losing viewership.
