Research: Disney+ Nearly Reached No. 3 U.S. SVOD Service In 2020
In the last quarter of 2020, Disney+ closed in on Hulu and nearly overtook the third place for the biggest streaming service in the United States for the year, according to data released this week by streaming guide service JustWatch.
The research found that relative newcomer to the Premium Streaming App field, Peacock, is already twice as big as Apple TV+, while reigning market leader Netflix maintained its dominance over Prime Video by a margin of 30% during the year just passed.
Looking forward, the growth of other streaming services impinged on Netflix’s market share, JustWatch finds. Newcomers Disney+ and Peacock grew by 5% and 6%, respectively, while HBO Max finished the year with a 9% expansion throughout 2020.
JustWatch is an international streaming guide service that helps over 20 million users per month find content of interest to watch on Netflix, Prime Video, Disney+, and other services available in 46 countries. The service helps visitors easily identify top trending streaming programs and indicates where to watch favorite movies and TV shows available to stream in the United States.
