Wrap-up video market: new streaming services to accelerate cord-cutting

Monday 13 May 2019 | 12:35 CET | Author: Tim Poulus | Background
The top three players in the Netherlands lost a net 10,000 TV customers in the first quarter. While some may have switched to smaller providers, cord-cutting is also having an impact on the Dutch market, albeit on a small scale still. At the same time, Netflix and Amazon continue to grow, thanks to partnerships with a growing number of providers. With more OTT services planned to launch in the coming months, we expect the rate of cord-cutting to increase.
