OTT: Friend or Foe to Pay TV? Study Suggests Friend 12 August 2015

OTT Pay TV Horowitz

 

The latest research from Horowitz Research’s Multiplatform Content & Services report shows that over-the-top video on demand streaming services remain a complement to, not a replacement for, traditional pay TV: 40% of Internet users have multichannel and an OTT SVOD service, 42% have multichannel only, 11% have an OTT SVOD service only, and 7% have neither. Among OTT SVOD users, 78% are also multichannel subscribers. But recent OTT developments from traditional pay TV distributors—DISH’s Sling TV and DirecTV’s Yaveo—could start changing the game.

“For many, streaming video has become an integral part of the viewing lifestyle. The idea of an Internet TV service, at a lower price point and with more customizable options, is an attractive prospect,” says Adriana Waterston, Horowitz’s SVP of Insights and Strategy.

The study finds that among Internet users overall, 51% have access to an OTT SVOD service (i.e., Netflix, Hulu paid, or Amazon Prime Instant Video), rising to 75% among Millennials. In fact, Millennials are three times as likely to have an OTT SVOD service and no multichannel (21% among Millennials, vs. just 7% among 35+) and nearly half (48%) report spending more than 50% of their viewing time streaming.

Furthermore, fifty-five percent (55%) of Millennials who are multichannel subscribers say that if the price were right, they would subscribe to an Internet TV service instead of their current cable or satellite service, compared to 43% of 35+. “For Millennials, streaming is as natural as turning on the TV set, so an OTT service direct from a distributor could be a natural fit,” says Waterston.
