Parks Associates Announces 2017 Top 10 U.S. Subscription OTT Video Services

HBO Now, Starz, and Showtime all moved up in the list while Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu maintain top three slots

DALLAS, Nov. 9, 2017 -- Parks Associates today released its updated list of the top 10 subscription over-the-top (OTT) video services in the U.S. market, based on number of subscribers. Netflix, Amazon, and Hulu continue to hold the top three slots while HBO Now made a significant move into the top five.

1. Netflix
2. Amazon Video (Amazon Prime)
3. Hulu (SVOD)
4. MLB.TV
5. HBO Now
6. Starz
7. YouTube Red
8. Showtime
9. CBS All Access
10. Sling TV

YouTube Red entered the top ten list during the past year, and the OTT services for premium channels Showtime and Starz moved up or entered the list compared to 2016. Sling TV has maintained its strong growth from 2016, and MLB and WWE continue to lead in sports-related subscription OTT video services, with WWE sitting just outside of the top ten.

"While the top three are no surprise, the big story over the past year has been the rapid subscriber growth for OTT video services from HBO, Showtime, and Starz. The combination of recognized brands and popular original content is driving demand for their offerings," said Brett Sappington, Senior Director of Research, Parks Associates. "Services such as Sling TV and Crunchyroll are still enjoying strong growth, but other services have simply grown at a faster rate over the past year."

Sappington notes that online pay-TV services are also growing quickly, fueled by nationwide advertising campaigns. "YouTube TV's advertising and sponsorship deal with MLB during the recent World Series is just one example of the marketing dollars behind these service offerings. While more online pay-TV services could enter the top 10 within the next year, those services that comprise the top 10 are recognized brands that are aggressively working to expand their subscriber bases. Displacing them will be a difficult task."

Parks Associates notes operators and OTT video services are working together in promotions, OTT service distribution and bundling, integration into the set-top box, zero-rating of video in data services, and billing. OTT services are partnering with each other for distribution and bundling, service promotion, improved brand awareness, and content licensing.

"Consumers have a variety of choices and are increasingly self-aggregating multiple OTT video services. As a result, partnerships within the OTT space are becoming more common, as operators, content owners, and OTT service providers all look to gain an edge in attracting subscribers and generating buzz for their offerings."

Parks Associates' OTT Video Market Tracker has research services for North America and Europe to track the content offerings, business strategies, and subscription numbers for OTT services in these regions. Additional data from these services:

- One-third of U.S. broadband households subscribe to multiple OTT services.
- More than 200 OTT video services are available in the U.S. today.
- Over 87% of OTT video services in the U.S. offer some type of subscription option today, including freemium, ad-free premium tiers, and other blended business models.
- Over 80% of services available in Western Europe offer some type of subscription option, including ad-free service tiers.

New Boxing Chapter To Start For Former UFC Heavyweight Title Challenger Gabriel "Napao" Gonzaga

October 28 in Worcester, MA

WORCESTER, Mass. (October 19, 2017) - The next chapter of former UFC heavyweight title challenger Gabriel "Napao" Gonzaga starts October 28th when he makes his professional boxing debut fighting on the "New England Future 4" card, the fourth and final 2017 installment of the popular professional boxing series, "New England's Future", to be held at the DCU Center (Exhibition Hall) in Worcester, Massachusetts.

"New England's Future 4" is presented by Rivera Promotions Entertainment (RPE), which is owned and operated by retired three-time, two division world champion Jose Antonio Rivera and his son, Anthonee (A.J.) Rivera.

The 38-year-old Gonzaga teaches Brazilian Ju-Jitsu (BJJ) in Worcester and lives nearby in Ludlow (MA). An imposing physical fighter, the 6' 2", 260-pound Gonzaga (17-11-0, 7 KOs, 9 SUBs, 1 DEC), holds 4th degree black belt in BJJ. The highlight of his MMA career was at the 2007 UFC 70, held in Manchester, United Kingdom, in which he knocked out K-1, Pride and Rizen champion Mirko Cro Cop with a head kick in the opening round, positioning Gonzaga for his unsuccessful challenge of UFC Heavyweight Champion Randy Couture in his next fight.

Gonzaga, who retired from MMA 1 ½ years ago, also defeated Ben Rothwell, Shawn Jordan and Chris Tuchscherer, among the more notable UFC fighters he faced in the Octagon.

Gonzago has a new opponent for his four-round bout, Tampa's pro-debuting Alejandro Esquilin Santiago, who also has a pro MMA background.

"I like challenges in my life," Gonzaga explained why he's making his pro debut. "I set new goals because I like to be competitive in sports. I have a good boxing coach who told me I should try. I was a BJJ (Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu) world champion and UFC title contender. I have good boxing skills and plan to put on a good show. I do have one-punch power and hit hard.

"I started boxing in 2001 and worked at it every day for two years to learn, but then I was competing in MMA. Now, I'm focused on boxing. I think boxing is the hardest part of MMA. I know you can't make mistakes in boxing and there's no time to relax. In MMA, I could relax a little at times in clinches, but the referee won't allow that in boxing. I'll probably fight more than once but not too many because of my age and I'm not really at the high-level of boxing like I was in MMA."

Gonzaga's head boxing trainer, Rocky Gonzalez, has been working with several MMA fighters, including Gonzaga, for more than a decade to help them improve their striking skills. Gonzalez freely admits that Gonzaga knew how to box before he started working with him, crediting Gonzaga's Muay Thai coach, and that boxing came naturally to the big Brazilian who has made an easy adjustment from the Octagon to the ring. Gonzalez also feels that leg positioning differences for MMA fighters switching to boxing, in terms of throwing proper punches, is somewhat overrated.

"In boxing," Gonzalez said, "fighters need their hands like their legs and elbows in MMA. Distance and timing is more important than where their legs and feet are positioned. Gabriel doesn't like sparring with headgear, so, his sparring is more like real fighting. He's been hot with some real shots but he's responded well. He's always going to have a puncher's chance and he's deceptive because he doesn't look as fast as he is.

"We didn't really plan anything but he got this good opportunity. He's always wanted to turn pro as a boxer and go from there. Gabriel is a good listener who keeps working hard to get better. When he first brought up boxing, he was contracted by the UFC, but we started talking about him boxing after the UFC released him. He knew Jose from him teaching boxing. Gabriel isn't doing this for the money. He's a competitive guy who wanted to try boxing."

Former WBU Americans and IBU North American cruiserweight champion, Vinnie "American Nightmare" Carita (16-1-1, 15 KOs), fighting out of Pembroke (MA), will take on Bolivian heavyweight champion Saul "El Fenjx Asesino" Faraff (64-23-3, 56 KOs) in the eight-round main event.

Hartford's (CT) popular Richard "Popeye The Sailor Man" Rivera (3-0, 2 KOs) meets Hansen Castillo (0-2) in the four-round, co-featured event to be contested at a 180-pound catchweight.

Many of New England's best and most popular N.E. fighters will be in action, including 2014 N.E. Golden Gloves champion Adrian "Tonka" Sosa (4-0, 3 KOs), fighting out of nearby Lawrence (MA), vs. veteran Norwalk (CT) welterweight Shakha Moore (12-23-3, 2 KOs) in a six-round match.

Also fighting on the undercard in four-round fights include 2016 N.E. Golden Gloves champio, Anthony Laureano (5-0, 3 KOs), of East Hartford (CT) vs. Bruno Dias (0-3), of Woburn (MA), New Haven (CT) Edwin Soto (10-2-2, 4 KOs) vs. Anthony Everett (1-6). of Lawrence, at a 150-pound catchweight, three-time USA Boxing Nationals champion Elvis Figueroa (2-0, 1 KO), of New Haven (CT), vs. pro-debuting Brazilian native Rene Nazare, Southbridge (MA) junior welterweight Wilfredo "El Sucaro" Pagan (2-0) vs. Patrick Leal (0-3), of Woburn (MA), at a 150-pound catchweight, Danbury (CT) junior welterweight Omar Bordoy, Jr. (2-0) vs. Schenectady (NY) veteran Bryan "The Brick" Abraham (6-30, 6 KOs), and Timmy Ramos (4-0-1, 4 KOs), of Framingham (MA) vs. Seth Basler (0-2), of Illinois.

All fights and fighters are subject to change.

Tickets, priced at $75.00 (ringside) and $45.00 (general admission), are on sale and available to purchase at the DCU Center box office, www.dcu.centerworcester.com, by contacting Jose Rivera (elgallojar@gmail.com/508.864.6954), AJ Rivera

Doors open at 6:30 p.m., first bout 7:00 p.m. ET.

Sponsors include Lundgren Honda, Championsofhealth.usna.com, and American Pyramids.

Part of the proceeds will go to Worcester Latino Dollars For Scholars.

Monster Energy Announces Continued Sponsorship Deal With MMA Superstar Conor "The Notorious" McGregor

CORONA, Calif., Aug. 16, 2017 -- Monster Energy announces a continued sponsorship deal with MMA mega Superstar Conor "The Notorious" McGregor. The ultra famous Irishman has been part of Monster Energy's MMA program since 2015, and was one of the first to join the elite team. The announcement is just weeks ahead of the 'Fight of the Century' – Mayweather vs. McGregor – where McGregor will set out to do what no one has ever done – defeat Floyd Mayweather on August 26th at the T-Mobile Arena in Las Vegas.

The sponsorship will ensure that the iconic M-Claw will be emblazoned on his shorts for this historic fight, as well as his UFC title defense this year.

"After two years as a Monster Energy UFC fighter, we are excited to continue our partnership with Conor McGregor as he prepares for the biggest fight in history," said Marianne Radley, Senior Vice President of Marketing, Monster Energy. "His bold confidence, determination and aggression are synonymous with our brand values and we are proud to have him represent our company."

In furtherance of the partnership with McGregor, Monster Energy has shot a 30 second commercial spot that can be seen by fans on Monster Energy's website, across various digital platforms and on select television programming.

The move symbolizes Monster Energy's continued commitment to MMA and ongoing support of the world's best-in-class athletes of which McGregor undeniably sits at the top as one of the highest-profile athletes in the world.

Only an elite few embody the Monster Energy Beast mantra, and McGregor is the epitome of Monster's high- energy values and drive to overachieve under pressure.

No mixed martial artist has ever commanded the attention and hype that McGregor has, earning him global household recognition for the 'Money Fight,' which is expected to break every PPV record, as well as offer increased access – through movie theater showings – to virtually anyone worldwide that wishes to watch the fight.

The fearless Irishman is undaunted in his boxing campaign despite zero professional boxing rounds under his belt facing off against the much heralded and undefeated eleven-time, five-division professional boxing world champion Mayweather. "Mystic Mac" McGregor is confident he will beat the boxing titan into permanent retirement. McGregor's superhuman confidence, charisma, relentless drive, perseverance, and raw talent have elevated his stock to one of the greatest fighters of all time in short order. If anyone can be the first to beat Mayweather, McGregor is the man with the magic to make history.

McGregor has not fought since 2016 when he made history by knocking out Eddie Alvarez to claim his second title and be the first and only fighter to become a two-division UFC champion and hold two titles simultaneously – featherweight and lightweight.

The 29-year old has a 21-3 career record in mixed martial arts with a 9-1 record in UFC and two previous Cage Warriors titles.

Fueled by his rabid fans from all over the world, this monumental event will go down as one of the biggest events in the history of fighting with record breaking crowds, box-office records and is expected to be the most viewed combat sports event on record. No doubt McGregor will deliver in typical fashion.

Conor "The Notorious" McGregor is amongst Monster Energy's elite UFC athletes along with, Jon "Bones" Jones, Daniel Cormier, Donald "Cowboy" Cerrone, Dominick "Dominator" Cruz, Chris 'The All American' Weidman, Tyron "The Chosen One" Woodley, Paige VanZant, Cain Velasquez and Yair Rodriquez.
