Basic Cable Subscribers Love Movies

According to a recent report, subscribers to basic cable watched the most movies last year than in the previous two.

“Cable networks are seeing the benefit of airing movies that get better non-prime time rating than some TV shows during the same time slots,” Erick Brannon, senior analyst for television media at IHS said in a press release.

Oddly, “Mrs. Doubtfire” was the most played movie of 2013.
