60% Of Pay-TV Users Want Subs To Include Streaming Content From Online Video Services

Sixty percent of pay-TV subscribers, or nearly half of U.S. broadband households, are interested in streaming movies and TV shows from an online video service as part of their pay-TV subscriptions, according to new consumer research from Parks Associates.

Rather than doubt OTT’s permanence as in the past, pay-TV providers are starting to respond to the demand: The number of pay-TV subscribers who receive online video services has jumped nearly 50% in a year.

“In late 2019, the market reached the crossover point where the same percentage of U.S. broadband households subscribed to an OTT service as subscribed to a pay-TV service, and now OTT adoption outpaces pay TV by double digits,” points out Kristen Hanich, senior analyst for the market research firm.

Presently, 79% of pay-TV households also have OTT subscriptions.
