Amazon Prime Video households in the United Kingdom (UK) Q1 2014-Q4 2019

The number of households in the United Kingdom with an Amazon Prime Video subscription grew to 7.1 million in the fourth quarter of 2019, which means that in 5 years they have gained nearly 6 million subscribers. This is despite tough competition from the subscription video-on-demand (SVOD) giant Netflix, who have over 11 million subscribers in the UK.

Who has more movies and TV shows, Netflix or Amazon?

Although Netflix is outperforming Amazon Prime Video in terms of household subscriptions, the latter does have a greater number of titles available. Amazon Prime Video had a total of 7400 titles available in the UK in 2018, whereas Netflix had 5000. The majority of Amazon Prime Video titles are movies, and Netflix actually had more TV shows available on their SVOD platform in the UK. 

Amazon’s content spend

Amazon Prime Video is an SVOD service owned and run by the online retailer Amazon. In 2018, Prime Video’s content spend amounted to an estimated 4.7 billion British pounds, an increase of nearly 3.5 billion British pounds compared to five years earlier in 2013.
