Netflix is cheaper than cable, but that alone doesn’t mean much. After all, a service is only worthwhile when you use it. So rather than asking how much Netflix costs relative to cable, we should instead ask: how much does Netflix cost per hour of content viewed, and how does that compare with cable’s figures? That’s math is pretty simple – so we went ahead and did it. We know from Netflix’s own numbers that Netflix’s more than 75 million users stream 125 million hours of content every day.
