In fact, speaking at their latest earnings call Netflix CEO Reed Hastings explicitly stated digital video's superiority to linear television:
"It’s fundamentally that internet TV is better than linear TV. The consumers can watch when they want, on what type of device they want, and the content has just got better and better."
"So the fundamental confidence about the large scale is because on-demand is a better experience than linear, and the entire market is going to move from linear to on-demand internet television over the next 10 to 20 years."
