Television is always changing. So, it seems, is how viewers watch their favorite shows.

The magazine Variety reports that a Wall Street analyst firm found Netflix is set to surpass major broadcast networks in views in 2016.

The firm looked at Netflix as if it were a TV network.

It also found that within a year, it would have a larger 24-hour audience than ABC, CBS, NBC and Fox.

Variety said the analysts found that 57 percent of subscribers would choose Netflix over a cable and satellite subscription.

Netflix said it has more than 62 million customers.
