Out of those, players like Microsoft, Google, Amazon, and Apple are leading the pack with revenue between $68 billion to $246 billion.

The industry will see an estimated increase of 18 per cent over the next few years, but within that, television will continue to dominate due to its broad appeal. The following table shows U.S. entertainment industry’s revenue by sector in 2016.
