New research shows 46% US internet households rate a streaming video service as highly valuable

DALLAS, Nov. 2, 2023 /PRNewswire/ — Parks Associates’ entertainment research finds streaming video services are among the top value-added services for US internet households when considering service bundles and providers. Forty-six percent of US internet households rate a streaming video service as highly valuable to their household, slightly behind the 47% who value a service that monitors and improves Wi-Fi in the home.

The research firm, which released its Top 10 list of subscription streaming services this week, will host hundreds of industry leaders at the sixth annual Future of Video: OTT, Pay TV, and Digital Media on November 14-16 at the Marina del Rey Marriott in Marina del Rey, California.

“We are excited to talk about all that’s happened in 2023 and what’s to come in 2024 for the business of streaming,” said Eric Sorensen, Director, Streaming Video Tracker, Parks Associates. “Streaming services can add significant value to a bundle, and we are seeing shifts in our top ten list due to unique offerings, such as Wal-Mart and Paramount+ or the Disney/Hulu/ESPN service package.”
