Parks Associates Research Analyst moderates OTT panel at Next TV Summit NY 2015, October 21

Dallas, Texas, October 19, 2015 - Parks Associates consumer research finds the majority (58%) of broadband households in the U.S. use at least one OTT video service on a monthly basis, while more than 25% of households use two or more services. The research firm will be presenting new OTT research at Next TV Summit & Expo, October 21, 2015, during a session analyzing consumers' evolving viewing habits, OTT services, and strategies to adapt in the current OTT environment.

"Despite impressive penetration, growth of U.S. OTT services has slowed recently, indicating the overall market for SVOD service might be saturated," said Glenn Hower, Research Analyst, Parks Associates. "Netflix continues to dominate the OTT space, with 43% of U.S. broadband households subscribing to its service. After Hulu and Amazon, with 19% and 17% respectively, penetration of OTT services drops drastically. However, with new niche services emerging that focus on targeted content and audiences, there is still room for growth in the space."

Hower will be moderating the session "OTT = Opportunity to Thrive" at 11:10 A.M. on Wednesday, October 21. He will also host a roundtable on digital rights management during the "Over the Top-ics" session. Next TV Summit & Expo is a high-level, future-focused conference, expo, and networking event for members of the TV, media, entertainment, and technology business community. The full-day event provides unique insights into the impact of new devices, new delivery systems, and new consumer expectations in the OTT world.
