Churn On Subscription OTT Services In The U.S. Is Down Slightly, Year-On-Year

19% of U.S. broadband households have cancelled an OTT service in the past 12 months, compared to 20% during 2015. The figures are from Parks Associates, the research and forecasting firm. OTT services have been stable for the past year, with top services Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu all reducing their churn rates, the company says. The figures relate to paid-for services and not free trials. If you focus on households that still currently subscribe to an OTT video service, one-third have cancelled one or more services in the past year. “This shows there is quite a bit of experimentation occurring right now,” says Brett Sappington, Senior Director of Research at the company.
