Report: Pay-TV Subscriptions to Drop 27% by 2024; Streaming Apps to Pick Up the Slack

Pay-TV services are showing their age as subscribership continues to fall, leading to a projected 76.7 million subscriber decrease by 2024, according to a report by Parks Associates. This drop would represent a 27% decline since the industry’s 2014 peak.

“There has been substantial innovation over the years, but streaming’s debut changed the trajectory of the modern video service industry,” said Paul Erickson, Director of Research for Parks Associates. “The evolution of streaming video has given consumers immense choice in how, when, and what they watch.” Erickson goes on to state that a lack of long-term contracts in the streaming industry allows viewers to easily switch between offerings, using free trials and reduced subscription prices to their advantage as they learn which streamers best suit their tastes.
