Parks: Millennials Covet OTT Video — And Pay-TV

Parks said nearly 60% of OTT video services in North America are subscription-based. About 64% of U.S. broadband households subscribe to an OTT video service, up from 59% in 2015. Average monthly spending on SVOD services among U.S. broadband households increased from $3.71 per month in 2012 to $6.19 per month in 2015.

Approximately 20% of U.S. broadband households canceled at least one OTT video service in 2015 — including 5% canceling Netflix, up from 4% canceling the service in the past 12 months.

Another 14% of broadband households subscribe to Hulu, while 7% of households canceled the service in 2015, roughly the same churn rate from Q2 2015. Parks said 24% of broadband households subscribed to Amazon Prime so that they could stream video. The churn rate for Prime Video declined slightly from Q2 2015 to the end of the year.
