Parks Associates to unveil latest streaming video market insights and new online tracker tool in upcoming research webinar
DALLAS, March 28, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Parks Associates is hosting a special webinar on Wednesday, April 5, at 10:30 am, featuring an exclusive sneak peek at the company’s new and improved OTT Video Market Tracker online service. The firm tracked 354 independent OTT services in the United States in 2022, with 87% of US internet households having at least one OTT subscription service.
The research webinar, OTT Video Market Tracker: Insights into the Evolving US Streaming Landscape, will highlight key service growth in the US, including service models, pricing, content acquisition, and partnerships in the OTT market. The streaming market in the United States is rapidly evolving, and Parks Associates has adapted its landmark OTT Video Market Tracker so that clients can easily get updates on market growth, new trends, and profiles of all OTT players. The webinar will preview this new client experience and provide insights into the latest trends and developments, including the increasing prevalence of ad-supported lower-cost tiers and the growth of ad-supported standalone services (FAST and AVOD), which are market growth drivers.
“Despite the dominance of subscription over-the-top (OTT) services, 44% of households continue to watch some form of pay TV, indicating that there is still interest in live/linear and ad-supported forms of content,” said Jennifer Kent, VP of Research, Parks Associates. “As consumers examine their finances out of fear of a recession, free streaming television continues to gain popularity. Savvy, ad-tolerant customers will view advertisements in return for cheaper solutions.”
The webinar will highlight the importance of innovation and hybrid business models for maintaining future subscriber and viewership growth. Attendees will gain valuable insights into the latest trends and strategies for success in the highly competitive OTT market.
Parks Associates’ OTT video and entertainment data:
- 40% of US internet households share or use shared credentials, up from 27% in 2019.
- 63% of US internet households own a smart TV.
- Nearly half of OTT subscribers hop between services multiple times over a 12-month period.
- 48% of subscribers cited content or a specific program as the primary motivation to subscribe to a new service.
“We are excited to show off our new tool to help the industry track the disruptive streaming market,” Kent said.
