Streaming TV is on the Rise

From Cord Cutters to "Cord Nevers," Streaming TV surpassed 268.3 Million Users in 2019.

With the average cable bill at around $217.42 per month [1], it’s no wonder people are cutting the cord from paid TV services. In fact, 40.2 Million households were projected to be without paid TV by the end of 2019, a 19.2% increase in cord cutting [2].

As we find ourselves in 2020 and begin looking to the future, we can see that cord cutting isn’t slowing down. If anything, it’s speeding up. By 2023, the number of households without paid TV will hit 56.1 million. [3]

Cord cutting doesn’t mean unplugging, either. According to MRI-Simmons, 12% of the US population have never had paid TV services—that’s about 31 Million people, most of which are Gen X. [4]

Streaming TV has been on the rise for years, but the recent COVID-19 outbreak has accelerated that growth.

80% of US Consumers now have at least one streaming video subscription [5], up from 55% in 2018 [6]. Between parents (Gen X) and prospective students (Gen Z) there’s an active audience ready to be entertained and engaged.

Generation Z and Millennials consume more video content than any generation before them. Websites, social media, and apps are a great way to engage prospective students, but Streaming TV allows you to meet an active audience where they're already engaging.
