Pay-TV and OTT Subscriptions Not Necessarily An Either/Or Situation: Research

For many TV viewers it’s not an either/or situation when it comes to pay TV and OTT video subscriptions, but rather a this and that, according to new research from Parks Associates.

In its new report, Market Snapshot: OTT and Pay TV: Partnerships and Competition, the firm found that 52 percent of U.S. broadband households have subscriptions to both a pay TV service and at least one OTT video service.

“The nature of competition in video services has changed. Today, it is less about replacing competitors and more about how you complement others in the market," said Brett Sappington, senior director of research at Parks Associates, in a statement. "Consumers are willing to carry multiple video accounts to get the content they want. Often they will select a preferred service with the content that they can't do without and then select other video services that complement the high priority option."
