Top Entertainment Trends


More and more, we as a society are looking for an escape. With so many forms of entertainment out there, we have more available to us than ever before. Some are a bit more niche while others are quite popular.

There are certain forms of entertainment that are trending a bit higher than others. While some might be surprising, these are the top entertainment trends happening throughout the next year.

Streaming Services

Perhaps at the top of the list of growing entertainment trends is video streaming. What began as a bit of a niche means of “cutting the cable” has grown into an industry that is expected to hit a whopping $146 billion in revenue by 2028. Almost everyone is partaking in streaming at this point.

The biggest streaming platforms, called paid over-the-top (OTT) services, feature names like Amazon Prime, Hulu, Netflix, and a litany of others. Users can find the top shows and movies, live television, and just about any niche you could hope for. Streaming is just starting to gain steam and there are tens of millions of subscribers out there already.

Mobile Casinos

Mobile gaming as a whole is becoming quite popular. For that reason, it should come as no surprise that the mobile casino realm continues to see growth. Casino games are quite popular as it is, so it makes sense that users would want to take their gaming experience to a mobile device. That “anywhere, anytime” access is one of the best features.

Casinos have remained a popular form of entertainment throughout the decades. As online casinos continue to grow, the explosion of mobile casinos will be right there with it. There is a litany of mobile websites and apps to choose from, offering classic casino games like blackjack, roulette, baccarat, poker, and so much more. There is even a plethora of online casinos that can provide entertainment for just a few bucks.

Social Streaming

Though the aforementioned forms of entertainment are quite popular, there may be no stronger form of entertainment going right now than social video. Look at Facebook Watch, for instance. Facebook is already a giant in the social media world and now looks to challenge YouTube for the crown of social video.

Facebook alone has 1.25 billion monthly viewers, which still can’t top YouTube. And then there is TikTok, which has grown exponentially in just five short years, up 4,200% in that span. With 1 billion monthly active users around the globe, TikTok has created a trend all its own. Social video will only continue to grow as more users move to use exclusively mobile devices for all of their surfing and perusing.

Cloud Gaming

Another growing entertainment trend is gaming, as a whole. Within that market is a niche all its own. Cloud gaming has brought friends together to challenge one another, and strangers to share their love of a game, and has allowed popular streamers to now reach millions of viewers and even make a living from doing so in the process.

There are an estimated 3.2 billion gamers in the world. Given the growth of cloud gaming, it could be the most important trend by 2025. Even better, cloud gaming allows streaming video game content to be reached from devices like laptops, desktops, consoles, phones, and tablets.

You no longer need a costly computer or gaming console to enjoy cloud gaming. With augmented and virtual reality still in their infancy stages, plus the growth of esports as a wagering option, gaming is more popular than it has ever been. Where it stops, no one can say.
