Netflix Adoption In The United Kingdom

Research from Parks Associates suggests that 55% of broadband households in the United Kingdom watch television programming and movies online, compared to 70% in the United States. However, only 30% of broadband households in the United Kingdom subscribe to online video services, compared to 64% in the United States.

“In many parts of Europe, pay-TV penetration is lower than the United States, and European consumers have been reluctant to pay for video in the past due to so many ‘free’ options such as the BBC iPlayer, said Brett Sappington, the director of research at Parks Associates. “As more pay options enter the market, with content unavailable anywhere else, they are slowly changing the culture of video viewing in Europe.”
