If you had a feeling you binged more streaming video last year, you likely did – and you had a lot of company.

Across the globe, time spent streaming video increased by more than half – an increase of 58% – during the last three months of 2019, compared to the same period in 2018, according to streaming tracking firm Conviva.

Bingeing and streaming time grew even more in the U.S. (61%) and in Europe (65%), finds Conviva’s “The State of Streaming” report. The Foster City, California research firm tracks more than 500 million unique viewers and 150 billion streams annually on more than 3 billion applications.

Net TV viewing choices increased during the fourth quarter of 2019 including the arrival of new streaming services such as Disney+ and Apple TV+ in November. And more options are on the way later this year including Comcast and NBC Universal’s Peacock and HBO Max from AT&T’s WarnerMedia.
