The Live TV Service Frndly TV Reports a 90% Jump in Viewership For Its $6.99 Live TV Streaming Service





Today the live TV streaming service Frndly TV reported that April 2023 saw a 90% jump in viewership compared to the same time in 2022. This comes after a very strong start to 2023.

Here is a quick breakdown of what Frndly TV announced about its 1st quarter 2023 numbers:

  • Total viewership on Frndly TV increased 82%
  • Viewership per subscriber increased 50% per week
  • Weekly active users increased 30%
  • Impressions increased 90%
  • Ad sales revenue increased 78%

“These numbers show the continuing appeal of Frndly TV to both our subscribers and advertisers,” said Steve Sklar, Frndly TV Head of Advertising Sales. “We are
demonstrating to the marketplace that quality, feel-good programming at a very
accessible price is a model of success.”

Frndly TV did not disclose subscriber numbers at this time.
