JustWatch: Apple TV+ viewership numbers holding steady, but not growing

JustWatch, an international streaming guide, has published a performance review of the various streaming services. The news is neither good nor bad for Apple TV+. Apple’s streaming service has been holding steady in viewership numbers for the past six months, but isn’t growing substantially.

About the study

The margins between Disney+, Hulu, and HBO Max & Netflix and Prime Video continue to grow smaller. Netflix is the market leader by a 8% margin, and Prime Video now holds just 6% over Disney+. According to JustWatch, Apple TV+ now has about 3% of the streaming market.

Disney+ and HBO Max were the only two streaming services to gain market share (+1%) through the second quarter of 2021. The mid-field SVODs (subscription video on demand)managed to retain their shares, but the larger players Netflix and Prime Video saw the most drastic change in market share.
