Our MULTISCREEN INDEX is proving invaluable for tracking trends in television subscriptions worldwide. The leading television service providers in the United States lost 3% of their subscribers in the first quarter of the year. It was their largest loss so far and an acceleration of a trend over the last year. There are likely to be further falls to come. The coronavirus restrictions are resulting in financial difficulties for many people. Those confined to their homes may be questioning the value of their television subscriptions, especially with the cancellation of sports events. Social isolation means that others may be watching more and finding value in other genres, or turning to online video subscription services. The latest prime ministerial address, shown across six channels, attracted an audience of 27.4 million people across the United Kingdom, or nearly nine out of ten of those watching television at the time.
