StreamOn: Understanding the Streaming Video Consumer
The StreamOn report is a qualitative and quantitative study designed to provide foundational data and insights into the consumer needs that are driving the rapidly changing and increasingly competitive video marketplace. This report will provides all organizations in the video entertainment industry a better understanding of the streaming video landscape and the tools to better position themselves to stay ahead of competitors.


The report will enable subscribers to:

  • Provide compelling streaming video products that address current and future needs of the target consumers
  • Improve ROI of content bundles and product feature development
  • Identify opportunities to capitalize on weaknesses in competitors’ video products
  • Defend against and/or capitalize upon cannibalization of existing traditional video revenue
  • Understand the streaming video purchase funnel


The StreamOn study focuses on three segments of streaming video customers:

Testers—Individuals who have tried premium streaming video services, but either have not upgraded an existing subscription or have canceled a past one

Supplementers—Individuals who subscribe to a premium video streaming service and modified their traditional Pay TV subscription

Complementers—Individuals who subscribe to a premium streaming video service and have not modified their traditional Pay TV subscription

Qualitative Research

An online focus group consisting of 44 individuals interacting via secure online bulletin boards. 

Quantitative Research

An online survey of 1,200 Testers, Supplementers and Complementers. The survey includes a MaxDiff choice exercise that drove the creation of an interactive simulator that optimizes streaming video plan features and options.
