The belief is that streaming video will eventually eliminate the DVD and Blu-ray industries, like CD's did to vinyl records. But it looks like streaming might just hurt the box office more.

According to a survey of 15,277 ConsumerReport.org subscribers, streaming video is now the most common way of viewing a movie. More than 52 percent of people have streamed a film in the past month, followed closely by watching a movie in a theater (47 percent), then renting a DVD or Blu-ray (43 percent) and lastly using a cable on-demand service for movie watching (32 percent in the past month.)

While this is great news for streaming movie king Netflix, the other rival services Vudu, Apple iTunes, and Amazon Instant Video all scored higher than Netflix terms of customer satisfactions in the same survey.

How about you? How do you watch your favorite flick?
