A new survey by RBC Capital Markets analysts found U.S. viewership for Amazon, Hulu, which is controlled by Disney is growing very rapidly. The percentage of respondents watching Amazon Prime Video increased 17 points from last year's survey, and Hulu's viewership increased 18 points.
Netflix which remains the most popular streaming service with 63% of respondents using it, up eight percentage points from last year; 54% use Amazon and 43% use Hulu.
Importantly, the growth in Amazon's and Hulu's viewership hasn't negatively impacted Netflix's viewership. That bodes well for all three as more competitors are about to enter the market.
Netflix managed to increase its U.S. subscriber base by 5 million households over the past 12 months, reaching over 60 million paid members. Meanwhile, about 103 million American consumers use Amazon Prime, up about 11% over the past year. Hulu's viewership has increased to 82 million unique viewers, and hours watched increased 75% last year.
Millennials now spend more time streaming Netflix alone than they do watching traditional cable TV on average.
The next 12 months will see several high-profile premium streaming video services enter the market. AT&T's WarnerMedia, Comcast's NBCUniversal, Disney, and Apple are all planning to launch new services in late 2019 or early 2020.
