TiVo: Average Consumer Spending Up to $26 Per Month on Transactional VOD

In a crowded over-the-top video space, where the average consumer is spending $142.20 monthly on Internet and video, transactional VOD spending is holding its own.

The average consumer is spending up to $26 each month buying or renting movies across myriad digital platforms such as Redbox and Vudu, according to new data from TiVo.

Accordingly, 55% of respondents cited as top subscription streaming “pain points” their belief that there are too many video services and “things keep disappearing from the services I subscribe to.”

Citing responses from 4,500 adult survey participants in North America in the second quarter (ended June 30), TiVo found that respondents spent $112.10 monthly on pay-TV and high-speed Internet, and another $32.70 on streaming services. Broadband-only subs spent $28.10.

Separately, Netflix, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video remain the most-used services. TiVo found that 45% of pay-TV subscribers also stream YouTube, Netflix and Prime Video, while just 7% of broadband-only subs do. The numbers would suggest that as new SVOD platforms Disney+, HBO Max, Peacock, Discovery+ and Apple TV+ expand distribution, consumer action follows.

But does it?

TiVo found that among pay-TV and broadband respondents with at least four streaming services, the additional player was the venerable SVOD platform Hulu, followed by upstart Disney+.

Just under 25% of pay-TV (and 18% of broadband) respondents indicated they’d cut or stopped subscribing to a paid streaming or live TV streaming service within the last six months; 19% noted canceling at least one video subscription due to their COVID-19 situation.

“While respondents cited a variety of reasons for canceling their streaming service, three of the top four reasons involved cost,” read the report. Indeed, nearly 70% admitted they’re not sure if they’re actually saving money on entertainment.

TiVo found that 55% of respondents are at their monthly spending limit, with 30% citing no fiscal room for an additional service, while 25% said they could only pay less than $10 per month for additional streaming services. More than 30% of respondents said that they could afford to pay more than $10 per month for additional streaming services.

Lionsgate’s sequel The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard repeated No. 2. An action comedy starring Ryan Reynolds, Samuel L. Jackson and Salma Hayek, The Hitman’s Wife’s Bodyguard debuted for digital purchase July 27. In the film, the lethal odd couple — bodyguard Michael Bryce (Reynolds) and hit man Darius Kincaid (Jackson) — are back. Still unlicensed, Bryce is forced into action by Darius’s wife, the infamous international con artist Sonia Kincaid (Hayek). As Bryce is driven over the edge by the volatile spouses, the trio get in over their heads in a global plot and soon find that they are all that stand between Europe and a madman (Antonio Banderas).

Both Vudu and FandangoNow are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.

Warner Bros.’ Wrath of Man, newly available for digital rental as well as purchase, took the silver on both charts. Based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck, the actioner pairs director Guy Ritchie with Jason Statham.

Taking the third spot on the FandangoNow chart (No. 4 on Vudu) was Warner’s actioner Mortal Kombat, available for digital purchase.

Fearing for his family’s safety, Cole goes in search of Sonya Blade at the direction of Jax, a Special Forces Major who bears the same strange dragon marking Cole was born with. Soon, he finds himself at the temple of Lord Raiden, who grants sanctuary to those who bear the mark. Here, Cole trains with experienced warriors as he prepares to stand with Earth’s greatest champions against the enemies from Outworld.

Disney’s Cruella, which became available for premium digital purchase June 25, landed at No. 4 on the FandangoNow chart (No. 7 on Vudu). The prequel tells the story of the rise of the 101 Dalmatians villain Cruella de Vil.

‘Nobody,’ ‘Wrath of Man’ Top Vudu, FandangoNow Charts

The Bob Odenkirk action thriller Nobody led the Vudu chart for the week ended June 13, while the Jason Statham actioner Wrath of Man, which led both the Vudu and FandangoNow charts for two consecutive weeks, managed to hang on to the top spot on the FandangoNow chart for a third consecutive week.

Both Vudu and FandangoNow are transactional VOD services owned by Fandango.

Universal Pictures’ Nobody, newly available for digital purchase, managed to dethrone Wrath of Man for the top spot on the Vudu chart. In the film, Odenkirk plays a mild-mannered father and husband who hits a boiling point when he’s robbed. The film took the bronze on the FandangoNow chart.

Warner Bros.’ Wrath of Man, based on the 2004 French film Cash Truck and available as a premium VOD rental, pairs Statham with director Guy Ritchie. In the film, a mysterious new security guard for a cash truck surprises his co-workers when he unleashes precision skills during a heist, and the crew is left wondering who he is and where he came from. The marksman’s ultimate motive becomes clear as he takes dramatic and irrevocable steps to settle a score. It took the No. 2 spot on the Vudu chart.

Coming in at No. 2 on the FandangoNow chart (No. 3 on Vudu) was Lionsgate’s horror sequel Spiral: From the Book of Saw, available as a premium digital rental. Spiral centers on Detective Ezekiel “Zeke” Banks (Chris Rock), who is working in the shadow of his father, an esteemed police veteran played by Samuel L. Jackson. Along with his rookie partner (Max Minghella), Banks takes charge of an investigation into murders that are eerily reminiscent of the city’s gruesome past.

Godzilla vs. Kong, from Legendary Pictures and Warner Bros. Pictures, fell to No. 4 on both charts. The film stars Alexander Skarsgård and Millie Bobby Brown and is available for premium digital purchase ($29.99). In this installment in the MonsterVerse, Kong and his protectors undertake a perilous journey to find his true home, and with them is Jia, a young orphaned girl with whom he has formed a unique and powerful bond. But they unexpectedly find themselves in the path of an enraged Godzilla, cutting a swath of destruction across the globe.

Coming in at No. 5 on the FandangoNow chart was Gravitas Ventures’ dramatic comedy Queen Bees, available at a premium digital rental. In the film, while her house undergoes repairs, a fiercely independent senior Helen (Ellen Burstyn) moves into a nearby retirement community temporarily. Once behind the doors of Pine Grove Senior Community, she encounters lusty widows, cutthroat bridge tournaments and a hotbed of bullying “mean girls” the likes of which she hasn’t encountered since high school, all of which leaves her yearning for the solitude of home. But somewhere between flower arranging and water aerobics Helen discovers that it’s never too late to make new friends and perhaps even find a new love. The film also stars James Caan, Ann-Margret, Jane Curtain and Christopher Lloyd.

Taking the fifth spot on the Vudu chart was Warner Bros.’ Tom & Jerry, the live-action/animation hybrid family comedy based on the iconic cat and mouse duo.

The 1993 family favorite The Sandlot made it to the Vudu top 10 list in the No. 7 position. The title is currently on sale for $4.99 for Father’s Day.
