Parks Associates announces pre-show workshop ahead of 2nd annual Future of Video

Pre-show workshop Changing World of Video Services to present consumer research with industry insights from 24i Media, Accedo, Brightcove, LiveRamp, Ovation TV, Samsung Ads, Tastemade, Tubi TV, and Wurl

Parks Associates research shows the percentage of US households subscribing to multiple OTT services has increased at a faster rate than household penetration of subscription OTT services. At the beginning of 2019, 46% of US broadband households had more than one OTT video subscription, up from 33% at the beginning of 2017.

The research firm will present new connected entertainment consumer research and discuss the changing landscape of the online video market during the workshop “Changing World of Video Services,” December 9, ahead of the 2nd annual Future of Video: OTT, Pay TV, and Digital Media conference in Marina del Rey, California.

“The number of OTT-subscribing households is plateauing, so the bulk of future growth is in the number of OTT households adopting multiple subscriptions,” said Jennifer Kent, Senior Director, Parks Associates. “As a result, many in the industry are exploring new business opportunities in OTT service bundling and aggregation, which would put services such as Amazon Channels, The Roku Channel, and Apple TV Channels in a good position to capture multiservice users looking for a way to simplify access to multiple OTT subscriptions. At this workshop, we will explore the impact of new OTT service models on consumer spending and their interest in new service options.”

  • Changes in Pay TV and OTT Services
  • Shifts in Video Distribution
  • The New Buyer Journey for Pay-TV and OTT Customers
