Netflix Is King of Paid Streaming, Study Says

Fear about missing out on the next big video audience has spurred programmers like HBO, CBS, Showtime and others to launch their own personal versions of Netflix. But the money generated by their new online options pales in comparison to the advertising revenue racked up from traditional TV viewing.

Parks reported if a U.S. household subscribed to any OTT service, more than half of them were signed up with Netflix. Netflix was also the best performer on limiting cancellations, or what is known as churn. In the past 12 months, 5 percent of U.S. broadband households cancelled their Netflix account, which was 9 percent of the company’s current subscriber base.
