Frequency of streaming movies in the U.S. 2019-2020

Daily consumption of movies decreased marginally among U.S. adults between July 2019 and January 2020, although the share of respondents who said that they watched or streamed films several times per week increased by three percent. With a wealth of video on demand, traditional TV, and vMVPD providers at their fingertips, U.S. movie fans have an array of options to satisfy their viewing habits, and younger generations in particular enjoy making the most of this. A total of 25 percent of adults aged between 18 and 29 years old said that they watched movies every day, compared to just nine percent of those above the age of 65 years old.
