What’s drawing internet users to subscription video-on-demand services like Netflix and Amazon Prime? Pretty much everything the services offer, it turns out—selection, convenience, lack of ads, searchability, flexibility of screens and even the original programming.
TiVo surveyed 3,140 internet users ages 18 and older in Canada and the US during Q3 2016. More than half said convenience was one of the main reasons they use rental or SVOD services. Nearly four out of ten said they use them because they can watch certain TV shows or stream entire seasons of their favorite shows. In addition, more than a quarter said it’s easier for them to find what they’re looking for.
