Friday 8 April 2016 | 10:49 CET | News
The OTT home entertainment market is growing in the UK, but through overlap with traditional TV rather than cord-cutting, according to Enders Analysis. Netflix boosted its subscribers by 37 percent (1.8 mln) to 5.2 million in 2015. This compares to 1.3 million VoD homes added by Sky including NowTV, BT TV, Virgin Media and TalkTalk combined. The most popular video entertainment provider was YouTube last year, with 35 million unique users in the UK.
