To date, there are 225 million subscriptions in the United States alone. This is equivalent to 61 million subscribers, averaging out to nearly four subscriptions per person.
There are endless different types of subscriptions, catering to the diverse needs of people all around the world. The current subscription model is convenient, simple, and engaging for all who take advantage of it.
