The battle for supremacy in the streaming world remains as fierce as ever. Leading the charge are Prime Video and Netflix, whose figures remain closely matched, reflecting an intense rivalry at the forefront of the market. This quarter, Prime Video managed to edge out slightly ahead of Netflix, although the margin is razor-thin, highlighting the dynamic competition between these giants.

Apple TV+ and Paramount+ are also locked in a competitive struggle. This quarter, Apple TV+ emerged victorious, demonstrating its growing influence and appeal among US viewers. This success can be attributed to a series of high-profile releases and strategic marketing campaigns that have captured the audience’s attention.

Apple TV+ has made significant strides globally, capturing the attention of the US market with a notable +1% increase in shares this quarter. This growth underscores Apple’s ability to continually innovate and deliver content that resonates with a diverse audience.

On the other hand, Amazon Prime Video has faced challenges in maintaining its market share, struggling throughout the second quarter to keep its numbers above Netflix. This struggle points to the increasing competition in the streaming space and the need for constant adaptation and improvement.

In an exciting development, Disney+ has started to offer Hulu content within its app for US users. This integration marks a significant step towards consolidating the two platforms, potentially offering a more seamless and enriched viewing experience for subscribers. The move could reshape the competitive landscape, providing Disney+ with a unique advantage in its quest to expand its market share.
