Conviva has reported (Advanced Television) that global streaming viewing is up 58% from 2018 to 2019, driven by consumers taking up services like Disney+ and Apple TV+ and by the convenience of consuming VOD content from IP-connected devices.  
At the regional level, Europe grew 65%, the Americas grew 63%, while Asia grew by just 10% year over year but with signs of strong future growth as home-based connected TV viewing grew 243% year over year.
