Even with the leading global SVOD players showing signs of plateauing growth, in the UK this represents an increase of almost 500,000 homes since the fourth quarter of 2021. The number of UK homes with two or more services now stands at 13.2 million homes, 46.3% of households, up from 12.4 million homes in Q4 2021.
