New Report Shows Other SVOD Services Creeping Up on Netflix

The report also found that U.S. consumers pay an average of $29 per month for what Parks calls “incremental video-related entertainment beyond pay TV,” and the the biggest chunks of that are movie tickets ($9.32 a month) and SVOD services ($7.95 a month), which will almost certainly rise in 2017 with Netflix’s $2-a-month price increase and the growth of newer streaming services.

“The average spending on subscription OTT video has increased over the past four years, with a notable jump in 2016,” Parks researcher Glenn Hower wrote. “The average monthly spend of $7.95 on subscription OTT video services is remarkably close to the $7.99 pricing of the lowest tiers of service for Netflix and Hulu, indicating that consumer expectations for U.S. market pricing has been set by Hulu and Netflix.”
