- Posted On:August 07, 2023
The growth is driven by a combination of price rises mainly that of Netflix in March 2022 and Amazon in September 2022, the clamp down on sharing of accounts and overall growth in subscriptions, which increased from 39.7 million in Q4 2021 to 42.2 million in Q4 2022. Netflix accounted for half of all SVOD revenue in 2022, with the four largest services, Netflix, Amazon Prime, Disney + and Sky’s Now, taking a 93% market share.
