This analysis, looking at consumer preferences and experiences around mobile operator-bundled OTT media services, is part of a series of reports based on survey results from Ovum's Digital Consumer Insights 2018 survey.


  • Two-fifths of respondents said they would pay for soft-bundled media services (i.e. OTT subscriptions added to mobile plans with an extended free trial period and/or a slight price discount), and a fifth would churn to another mobile operator if that was the only way of accessing such a bundle.
  • Well over a third of respondents with experience of subscribing to an MNO-OTT media bundle said it made them more loyal to the carrier offering it. And a fifth said that subscribing to it meant spending more on their mobile bill.
  • Only under two-fifths of respondents with experience of subscribing to MNO-bundled OTT media services reported an effortless activation process, in which they were automatically recognized by the OTT service provider as being entitled to the bundle offer.
