2023 was a tough year for video streaming, with churn rates nearing 50%. Ad-funded models seem like a solution, but our research shows consumers still prefer SVOD over AVOD services. The conclusion: Lowering prices isn't enough; a stellar user experience is crucial.'s survey of 2,000 global consumers reveals:

🔹 Subscription services still lead: 49% of respondents subscribe to 2-3 paid services, while only 11% use three AVOD services.

🔹 Price matters: 42% expect AVOD services to be 30-50% cheaper than subscriptions. Less than a quarter think these should be free.

🔹 Ad experience challenges: Repetitive ads and poorly timed interruptions are major annoyances. Only 13% are most irritated by irrelevant ads.
