Lots of people are canceling HBO Now and Amazon Prime, study says

Last month, Parks Associates released new research suggesting cancellation rates for over-the-top services have held steady at about 18% for the past three years.

“With OTT service penetration starting to plateau at around 65% adoption among U.S. broadband households, the OTT video market is reaching a level of saturation for the services currently available to consumers,” said Hunter Sappington, research analyst at Parks, in a statement. “In an increasingly crowded and competitive marketplace where subscriber acquisition costs are high, this plateau highlights the need for services to focus on retention rather than solely acquisition. Successful services can encourage retention in several ways, such as community building, continuously offering new and fresh content, and improving their user experience.”
