A few weeks ago, we survived over 2,000 of our readers and asked them a wide range of questions about cord cutting. One of the questions was what on-demand streaming services they used to watch TV. According to that list these are the top 10 on-demand streaming services.

A few quick notes: First we understand that many on-demand services also offer live TV. With that said, we consider this to be primarily an on-demand service that may also offer some live content. Unlike YouTube TV, which is primarily a live TV service with some on-demand content.

The second important note is many people have multiple services, meaning these numbers won’t add up to 100%.

#1 Amazon Prime Video 70.7%
#2 Netflix 59.3%
#3 Paramount+ 50.4%
#4 Hulu 43.8%
#5 Disney+ 36.4%
#6 Max 33%
#7 Apple TV+ 27.2%
#8 Showtime 10.6%
#9 Peacock 5.7%
#10 ESPN+ 0.6%

Once again, Amazon remains the dominant streaming service used by cord cutters. According to many cord cutters they say they pay for Amazon Prime mainly for the free shipping but the movies and TV shows are a nice benefit. After that maybe the biggest surprise is the growth of Paramount+, now at 50.4%. Clearly Paramount has found a model that will attract new subscribers thanks to its originals and huge catalog of movies and TV shows.

Anything on this list jumps out to you? Is it to high on the list or too low? Is there a service you are surprised is not listed in the top 10 streaming services?
