Amazon’s Prime Video has retained the top spot in Parks Associates’ Top 10 List of US Subscription Video Services with Paramount+ moving ahead of ESPN+ for the first time.

The research firm reports that 89% of broadband households have at least one OTT service, 41% have used an AVOD service in the past 30 days, and 29% subscribe to eight or more OTT subscriptions.
