The way we consume tv, film and music had already changed hugely prior to COVID-19, but with the pandemic we wondered how many streaming services families were using.

We asked our Insights panel of parents to answer this quick question:

How many paid streaming services is your household using? (e.g. Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney+, Spotify etc?

  • 0 services 17%
  • 1 services 19%
  • 2 services 40%
  • 3 services 14%
  • 4 services 9%
  • 5 or more services 2%

Some additional comments from our panel members included:

“I prefer to a television service, as I haven’t used a tv service in years.”

“It annoys me that we are paying a tv licence when there is very little to watch and we have to pay for other services.”

“Netflix have a big selection but not great for recent movies, Amazon Prime the same, Disney+ is ok for range of movies and documentaries, Spotify is the best in my opinion for range of music.”

“There can be a lot of unwanted material included but often the cost of accessing something you really are interested can make it prohibitive.”

“They are the new normal, excellent range of media products for kids (and adults)”

“We have Disney+ and it’s been a bit of a lifesaver over these past few weeks!”

“We currently get Amazon Prime free with Eir it’s a nice bonus to have. Disney Plus was right on time as lockdown commenced and it’s a life saver. Netflix content can be hit or miss. Sometimes I feel that it’s just too much to scroll through.”

Reflections for Entertainment Brands

  • There’s obviously an opportunity to research and reach out to market to the significant segment with no streaming subscriptions.
  • Many households are taking multi-user subscriptions covering adults and children, so offering different types of content and different access levels is attractive.
