Pluto TV’s Most Popular Channels Revealed

In October, research firm Parks Associates said in the past month, 31% of U.S. households reported watching an ad-supported video on demand or a free ad-supported streaming service – a 13% increase from 2018. In addition, 41 million U.S. households are expected to watch ad-based over-the-top (OTT) video services like Tubi, Freevee, and Pluto TV.

In addition, ad-supported tiers of subscription video on demand services, SVOD, have increased. Peacock, Hulu, Paramount+ and Max all reported more subscribers to their ad-supported tiers, according to TiVo’s second quarter Video Trends report.

“As an industry, we are now entering a new phase of streaming characterized by evolving business models aimed at enhancing profitability,” Parks said during the firm’s State of the Market: Streaming Video Services report.
