Netflix Subscriber Churn Increase Could Be Sign Of 'Stream Cutting'

With the growing number of streaming services, churn will be an issue as consumers experiment with different offerings, Brett Sappington, senior director of research for Parks Associates, told IBD.

There were 101 subscription streaming video services available in the U.S. market as of March, Parks reported.

Beyond major services like Netflix, Hulu and Amazon, there are a host of smaller niche services. They include NBCUniversal's comedy network Seeso, anime video service Crunchyroll and horror movie provider Shudder.

At the end of 2015, about 20% of U.S. broadband households had canceled at least one over-the-top video service in the previous 12 months, Parks Associates said. Some 64% of U.S. broadband households subscribe to an OTT video service, the firm said.
