‘Subscription Fatigue’ Not Slowing OTT Proliferation After All: Research Firm

The popular “subscription fatigue” narrative is that consumers have topped out on the number of over-the-top services they’re willing to pay for and are now in pruning mode.

But Parks Associates—which was one of the first research outfits to put the notion of subscription fatigue into the lexicon—now says that the number of OTT services in the average home is still expanding, and it’s traditional pay TV that’s getting the pruning.

According to some of the latest Parks research, the percentage of broadband homes subscribing to pay TV dropped from 87% in 2014 to 79% last year. But the percentage of households subscribing to at least one OTT service increased from 55% to 64% over that span. And the amount of homes taking two, three or four OTT services also increased significantly over that time period.
