In an age where US TV consumers enjoy an excess of viewing options, video providers are finding themselves looking for new solutions that will help them keep their customers engaged. For the consumers themselves, it used to be a pretty simple choice: cable or satellite TV. Today, video providers offer primary TV packages, TV Everywhere options, and now skinny bundles as well. In addition, consumers can also choose from Netflix and Prime Video and then there’s Hulu and Sony Vu; the list goes on and on. The latest count by Parks Associates shows that the US consumer now has over 200 OTT services from which to choose, so it’s getting pretty crowded out there.

How many users do Spotify, Apple Music and other big music streaming services have?

Article | June 13, 2020

Sometimes the statistics around how many people are streaming music – and how many are paying for it – can lead to confusion and misinterpretation.

Another story claimed that “Pandora has overtaken Apple for second spot” in subscriber rankings, which mistakenly compared the former’s number of active listeners (most of whom don’t pay) to the latter’s paid subscriber count.
