Question of the week: What animal could you beat in a race?
7%, the surprising number of American adults who think chocolate milk comes from brown cows. Embarrassing, definitely, but this stat highlights a bigger issue: more Americans are pretty illiterate when it comes to agricultural knowledge. A lot of us have no idea where our food comes from, or how it’s made. And it’s not just chocolate milk: A study in the ‘90s found that 1 in 5 adults weren’t aware that hamburgers are made from beef. — Washington Post

The Latest in Streaming
Netflix is now large then all of cable
New data indicates that Netflix reaches more US subscribers than the nation’s largest cable companies combined. Netflix’s 50.85 million subscribers appear to top the 48.61 million reported by the top six US cable companies, including Comcast and Charter Communications. (NOTE: These totals do not include satellite TV providers, such as DirecTV.) A new survey of 1,000 streaming subscribers from IBB Consulting finds that around 63% of customers who subscribe to a streaming video service still pay for a cable subscription. 61% of respondents also said they’d be willing to pay around $2 more per month for their subscriptions, if prices increased. — Fortune
Study shows Millennials forgot about regular TV
Millennials aren’t able to identify the networks responsible for some of the most popular television shows, with the exception of those created by Netflix. Consulting firm Anatomy Media released a report indicating most viewers age 18-26 can’t match television shows from ABC, NBC, FOX, CBS, or Disney to their respective networks. This means Jessica Jones is more likely to resonate with millennials as Netflix original programming than Empire does as a Fox network show. — The Next Web
