Changing The Channel On Instant Video Serivces

"Several factors contribute to OTT video service churn by consumers. In some instances, consumers are experimenting with new services, trying a service and cancelling before the trial period ends or within a few months. Popular shows or events, such as HBO's 'Game of Thrones' or WWE Network's 'Wrestlemania,' can be beneficial in terms of attracting users. However, there is a risk that consumers will unsubscribe once they've watched these popular items," Brett Sappington, Senior Director of Research, Parks Associates, said.

There are currently 101 OTT video services in the US but Parks Associates notes that only 5% of homes subscribe to a service other than Netflix, Amazon Prime or Hulu.
