Streaming App Provider Ranking Sees a Close Race, New Member of the Top 10 


Classics, action, new episodes — PYMNTS’ latest Provider Ranking of Streaming Apps has it all. This month, some contenders remain where they were last time, some move up a spot or two in the rankings, and one joins the top 10. 

Just three points separate the scores of the top three apps, so it’s a tight race. Now, let’s see what’s playing. 

The Top 5 

Holding on to its spot at the top is YouTube, which records a score of 92. 

Just one point behind is Netflix. With a score of 91, it retains the second spot in the rankings. 

Also remaining in the position it was in last time is Disney+. This app sits at No. 3 with a score of 89. 

In the No. 4 spot, we have two contenders tied with a score of 86. Spotify holds the same position in the rankings as last time but now shares it with Amazon Prime Video, which has improved its score by three points and jumped two levels in the rankings — making it one of this month’s movers and shakers.
