Whip Media: Netflix Remains No. 1 SVOD Service in France

After a sluggish debut, Netflix France over the years has established itself as the country’s go-to subscription streaming VOD platform, ahead of rivals Amazon Prime Video and Disney+, according to new data from Whip Media Group.

In a fourth quarter 2021 survey of 3,000 French respondents via its TV Time app, Whip found that 88% of respondents subscribe to Netflix and 76% said they would choose the SVOD behemoth if they only could keep one streaming service. The average respondent subscribed to 2.7 SVOD services.

Driving consumer loyalty is the fact Netflix has invested heavily in local content, a strategy the streamer is emulating in key markets around the world, including the U.K., India, Spain, Germany and Latin America.

The streamer had 42 locally produced French-language series available in Q4, compared with nine on Amazon Prime Video and one on Disney+.

With the European Union recently implementing a new policy mandating SVODs operating in Europe have at least 30% of their content be European based and invest at least 20% of their local revenue in local content, Netflix, Amazon, Disney+ and Apple TV+ last December signed an agreement with France’s broadcasting authorities (CSA) to start investing between €250 million ($285 million) to €300 million ($342 million) on average per year.

As expected, respondents felt there are too many SVOD services on the market, with 30% indicating they would likely drop one streaming service in 2022. Notably, French respondents were concerned about a platform’s catalog content, with just 24% of respondents considering library content very important. That compares with 45% in Germany, 52% in Spain, 61% in the U.K. and 67% in Italy.

At the same time, 45% of respondents in the U.K. said original content was very important on their SVOD service, followed by 42% in Italy, 36% in France, 35% in Spain and 27% in Germany.

Whip Survey: European Viewers Average Three SVOD Subscriptions

Consumers in the FIGSUK (France, Italy, Germany, Spain, United Kingdom) countries maintain approximately three SVOD subscriptions on average, according to a Whip Media survey of TV Time app users.

Whip Media surveyed more than 9,000 users of it TV Time app across the five European territories Aug. 3-8, 2021, on consumer sentiment surrounding paid streaming. TV Time, a Whip Media company, is a free TV and movie viewership tracking app with more than 19 million global users. 

The majority of respondents felt there are too many services, with cost being the significant factor in why respondents think there are too many. Switching between services, navigating between and within them, and finding time to watch all of the programming available were also factors.

Monthly spend on services ranged from 23 Euros to 28 Euros (U.K. Pounds were converted to Euros). SVOD expenditure per person was highest in the United Kingdom, even though the total number of services per person was similar to the other countries.

Library content was considered to be of greater importance to European consumers than original content. France was the only country that bucked this trend, as French viewers assigned much lower importance to library content than those in other countries. United Kingdom viewers assigned original content the highest importance of all the countries surveyed.

Netflix, Disney+ and Amazon lead SVOD services in overall satisfaction in every country surveyed — except France. Local platforms (Arte and Canal+ VOD) occupied two of the top four platforms in satisfaction in France. 

Survey results were weighted to balance with the general population in each country by gender and age (13-54). The full study is here.
