The Streaming Video-on-Demand War Is Going to Get Bloody

Brett Sappington, an analyst with Parks Associates, a market research and consulting company, says that though annual cancellation rates among traditional cable and satellite distributors hover around 4%, surveys of consumers show that churn rates at streaming services tend to be significantly higher. Netflix, which has the lowest turnover rate of any streaming service, still loses about 7% of its existing subscribers each year, he says. It goes up from there. “The newest services are the ones that have the highest churn,” Sappington says.
