As YouTube TV’s recent rate hike shows, these services themselves are not immune to rising programming costs. And the same traits that make streaming much less customer-hostile than cable or satellite—the absence of long-term contracts and rented hardware to set up and then return—also make them easy to leave.

Hence, the research firm Parks Associates estimated at the end of June that 41% of streaming customers churned out of one service or another in the second quarter of 2020, up from 35% in Q1.
