Netflix and Hulu have a growing audience across smartphones and tablets, but both services are still struggling to grow.
According to new research from ComScore, a US technology and analytics company, the average household watching Netflix on a smartphone in the US has dropped to just over 2.6 million in 2017.
This is down from 4.5 million in 2016, and a drop of nearly 8 million in 2015.
The streaming service has also lost its number one position in total viewership.
Netflix is now number two behind only HBO.
In fact, ComScore notes that Netflix’s viewership is down by nearly 1 million, compared to the same time last year.
In 2016, Netflix’s average monthly active user was 730,000 people.
In 2017, it fell to about 700,000, with the majority of its decline coming from its streaming service, which dropped by about 1 million people.
The company’s other major rival, Amazon, was the biggest gainer from 2016 to 2017, though it’s still down nearly 3 million subscribers, from 2.7 million in the same year to 2.1 million in 2018.
