Introduction

Ovum's Digital Consumer Insights 2018 survey has provided some interesting answers to the question of how consumers subscribe to music streaming services. Until recently, the precise popularity of the likes of family and student plans was largely unknown. The results of this Ovum survey clearly show that family plans are a hit with subscribers, so much so that they are keeping a lid on music streamers' ARPU.
