Amazon Prime Music Leads Streaming in the American Household

Parks Associates released new research that points to very good news for the e-commerce giant. Most paid streaming music services experienced an increase in subscriptions in 2016. Amazon Prime Music, however, led the market with 15% of U.S. broadband households opting for a paid subscription through Prime. This represents a 50% increase in paid subscriptions for the service from 2015 to 2016.

In even more good news for the company, 28% of U.S. broadband households subscribe to Amazon Prime Video. Glenn Hower, Senior Analyst at Parks Associates, said that this number “likely reflects actual usage of the streaming music portion of Amazon’s service.” He added,

“Amazon’s bundled service model has been a successful strategy in boosting the company’s status in multiple content verticals.”
