US online pay-TV households set to double

“In 2017, 14% of non-pay-TV households were planning to subscribe to a service in the next 12 months, a notable increase from 2015 and 2016,” said Parks Associates senior director of research Brett Sappington.

“Over 60% of these households are planning to subscribe to an online pay-TV service, either standalone or as part of a service bundle, so consumers are showing a willingness to test alternate pay-TV offerings. While OTT gives subscribers the opportunity to pick and choose single services, it is easier for them to manage a single bundle. Desire for this convenience will continue to drive interest in online pay-TV services, provided they hit the right price point and deliver the desired content channels.”
