Streaming: Who’s Winning the war?

The lockdown has caused a lot of us to be either sitting down and playing video games or streaming our favourite shows on our prefered streaming services. Or on more than one if you  are subscribed to more than one service. But which one of them is doing the best? Out of all of us, which streaming platform do we as a collective like the most?

To no one’s suprise really, the use of streaming services has increased during the pandemic. Netflix has profited from the pandemic with the most significant increase of +332%. Disney Plus followed with a 290% increase of usage on JustWatch. You can see the rise of each of the different streaming services below:

  • Streaming Service

  • Amazon Prime Video
  • Hulu
  • +% Increase since March 17th
  • 332%

Westworld is a Sci-Fi lovers dream! From JJ Abrams and Jonathan Nolan, starring Anthony Hopkins and Ed Harris, the show is based on a 1973 movie written and directed by Michael Crichton (Jurassic Park/Lost World writer)

Now, the premise, is based on a future that isn’t too far from our own world right now, people go to a theme park (see the Michael Crichton link) where we as human’s get to live out our craziest fantasies through robots. Dress up as a cowboy and get into gun fights with cyborgs, go to strip clubs or even get drunk in the local robot bar (without actually getting drunk)


All seems fun right?

Well here’s where it all goes wrong. Said robots become too intelligent and are self aware, well, you can guess what happens next. The robots, go all terminator on the hosts and start causing trouble and fighting back against the humans.


We can’t suggest this enough, when you can make sure you check it out!
