Will Prime Video, Netflix, Disney+ Be the Only Streamers Left Standing in 10 Years?

New data from Parks Associates shows Netflix and Prime Video users have the greatest subscription loyalty of any streamers.

New data released by Parks Associates shows that Netflix and Prime Video are not just some of the largest streaming services in the world, they have the most loyal customers as well. Parks’ numbers indicate that both streamers can claim an average duration per subscriber of more than four years. That’s more than double the average duration of streaming services like Paramount+, Disney+ and Max.

A graph from Parks Associates showing which streamers command the most customer loyalty.

“Households are still experimenting with different services as they evolve over time to build their own service stack,” Parks Associates’ Eric Sorensen said. “Service consolidation has changed subscription dynamics, as Showtime has become part of Paramount+ and HBO is now Max, but even as consolidation occurs, it is having a limited effect on churn for these services. Premium service subscriptions average around two years, which suggests consumers are getting better value out of the consolidated content.”

The customer loyalty data from Parks shows why Netflix and Prime Video might be in the best position of all as the Streaming Wars end, and the Age of Aggregation begins.
