Cable vs Subscription VOD : The Numbers 29 January 2016

 

 

Parks Associates says 60 percent of SVOD subscribers have canceled one or more service in the past year. Yet they appear to ping to other services instead of abandoning SVOD altogether, accounting for the healthy growth.

Here’s a look at how the three biggest Subscription VOD sites compare to the three biggest premium cable networks.

While Netflix and Amazon have moved ahead in total subscribers, cable has tallied notable growth since 2010 even against that added competition.

Owner: Netflix

U.S. subscribers: 44.7 million

Growth since 2010: +24.6 million

Signature shows: “House of Cards,” “Orange is the New Black,” “Making a Murderer”

Interesting fact: Netflix accounted for more than a third of all web entertainment traffic in 2015.

 

AMAZON
