Netflix and Amazon now have more customers than Sky and BT

Britain's growing appetite for services such as Netflix and Amazon Prime has seen the number of subscribers to streaming services overtake those signed up to pay-TV providers such as Sky, BT and Virgin Media for the first time. However, this figure includes subscriptions to multiple on-demand services within one household: 11.1 million households (39.4%) have at least one of either Netflix, Amazon or NOW TV.

Walmart, of course, already owns a service called Vudu for which it paid $100 million almost a decade ago.

Walmart isn't totally new to video streaming-it already owns Vudu, a service for buying and renting movies. The $8 price point will aim to attract consumers in those middle states, as well as people who are looking for a cheaper service than Netflix. Subscription revenue generation was down 2.7 per cent previous year to £6.4bn.

However, viewers aged 16-34 watched more non-broadcast than broadcast content - an average of 2 hours 37 minutes a day (54%) across all devices, compared with 2 hours 11 minutes (46%). Less than half of younger people's total daily viewing of 4 hours 48 minutes went to broadcast content, while they spent just under an hour a day watching video on YouTube.

The idea is that by getting bigger, traditional media companies will be able to compete with Netflix and other tech companies that are paying billions to create new content. A host of new shows and movies are coming to Amazon Prime Video including oldies, newbies, and originals. Of 3,729 Brits polled by Ofcom, 46% said they never use such services. These challenges can not be underestimated.

In comparison Netflix's U.S. price is $10.99 monthly and Amazon costs $12.99, with the option of a $99 annual membership. "By making the best British programs and working together to reach people who are turning away from TV, our broadcasters can compete in the digital age".
