Recently the research firm Parks Associates released their updated list of the top 10 paid TV subscription services. According to this new report, we have a small shakeup in the lleaderboardas HBO Now and Starz jump into the number 4 and number 5 spots.
Here are the top 10 subscription streaming services in the United States according to The Parks Associates:
- Prime Video Users (Amazon Prime)
- Hulu (SVoD)
- HBO Now
- CBS All Access
- Sling TV
- DirecTV Now
“Which company is the leading OTT video subscription service remains a topic of debate,” said Brett Sappington, senior director of research, Parks Associates. “According to our estimates, Amazon has more Prime Members than Netflix has subscribers. However, when you consider only those Prime Members that use Prime Video, Netflix is the largest. Hulu remains the third largest but continues to grow its subscriber base.”
With HBO Now up as the #4 streaming service, it gives strength to the DISH argument that subscribers can just use HBO Now during their fight with AT&T. It is also interesting to see MLB.TV so high on the list. One wonders if MLB.TV would be lower on the list a few months from now during the offseason.
