24% Of Consumers Say They Have Too Many Streaming TV Subscriptions

The report, out this month from Hub Research, turned up one impressive statistic: In 2019, nearly a quarter of consumers — 24% — say that they “already have too many online TV subscriptions.” That figure is up from 14% just a single year earlier, which should be a big warning sign to new streaming services that there really isn’t much room for them, and there will likely be even less for the foreseeable future. In the same survey, 36% of respondents said that they’d would drop “at least one” of their streaming TV subscriptions if they were to subscribe to a new one. – Adam Rowe, Forbes » http://bit.ly/2wuWjsT

Kids’ suicides spiked after Netflix’s ′13 Reasons Why,’ study finds

The study published Monday can’t prove that the Netflix show “13 Reasons Why” was the cause, but there were 195 more youth suicides than would have been expected in the nine months following the show’s March 2017 release, given historical and seasonal suicide trends, the study estimated. – Lindsey Tanner, Associated Press via Live 5 News » http://bit.ly/2ISSrtZ
