The United States has one of the world's largest OTT markets. The growing popularity of OTT content simultaneously liberates US citizens from cable, geographic restrictions, and broadcast schedules while also fundamentally altering the way video is sold, produced, and consumed. As a result of the limited genre options, package flexibility, increased device availability, internet penetration, and overall lower costs, adoption has increased. The increasing percentage of viewing time spent on OTT video content, combined with rising revenue figures, reflects the country's changing entertainment landscape. In the United States, approximately 64 million homes are accustomed to OTT, with the average home viewing value estimated to be around 86 hours of OTT content per month. Furthermore, nearly 66% reach homes via Wi-Fi, with OTT content genres primarily related to sports, education, and entertainment seeing rapid growth.

Furthermore, as smartphone penetration increased, smartphones became the second most popular device for streaming OTT platforms. They are also inexpensive, allowing people of all income levels to use smartphones and streaming platforms. During the forecasted period, subscription VOD is expected to manage the market. This is primarily due to an increase in the number of subscribers using over-the-top (OTT) platforms. Furthermore, due to the high demand for advertising videos for product and service promotion, advertisement-based VOD is steadily increasing. The market is divided into personal and commercial user types. The market is expected to be driven by the personal user segment. The growing use of smartphones and tablets, as well as easily accessible internet, raises the market's perception of OTT services for personal entertainment and knowledge.
