==According to a CordcutterNews article on a recent poll, over 55% of the people polled said that online and streaming Television is their default for watching programs.
Just recently Netflix was again a big winner at the Emmys, taking best drama with “The Crown” and other shows. With the pandemic, over 10 million subscribers were added in one year to Roku and Amazonfire each.
According to Hub 2021 Decoding the Code report 2021
After polling over 1500 consumers on what they watch in 2021
7 in 10 use traditional and streaming TV
but the traditional only TV watchers have shrunk by half since last poll.
With the question ” How many of the big 5 – Netflix, Hulu. Disney+, HBOMax and Amazon Prime are you watching?”
With all the new TV platforms being added from Disney+ to Pluto, more people are subscribing to multiple platforms rather than only one like Netflix in previous years. (Of course, prior to 2020 only three of the big 5 were available).
Disney+, with the pandemic, changed its own Content Distribution rules and premiered movies like Black Widow first on streaming TV platform as most theatres were closed. However, just recently they have returned to the premiering their movies in theatres first.
Pay-TV is declining as there is more choice and in 2021 only 34% of the viewer’s time is spent watch pay television.
Viewers are watching more Smart TV’s doubling since 2019 as more convenience having the various Streaming TV subscriptions available all on one platform. For example, my Roku enabled TV, when I turn it on, it has Netflix, Disney+, Acorn, Hulu, Youtube, etc. all on the Roku platform so it is much easier to subscribe and/or flip from one Streaming TV Channel to another channel.
