The number of U.S. ad-supported streaming households that report having recently used an ad-supported video-on-demand (AVOD) or free, ad-supported streaming (FAST) service leapt to 41% in this year’s third quarter, from 31% in Q1.
That’s according to data from Parks Associates’ Video Service Consumer Insights Dashboard, which also finds 46% of U.S. internet households rate a streaming service as being "highly valuable" to their household.
“Streaming providers are raising prices and cracking down on account sharing in search of profitability, but consumers are struggling to make ends meet. Ad-supported business models are a win-win for both parties,” observes Parks Research Analyst Sarah Lee.
