Finder TV Streaming Customer Satisfaction Awards 2022

How did your favourite TV streaming service fare in our latest customer survey? We reveal all, including the winning and the highly commended providers.

Welcome to the Finder TV Streaming Customer Satisfaction Awards 2022

Our awards are decided by the only votes that really matter – yours. We asked customers of all the major TV streaming providers to tell us about their experiences. Now we can reveal how they rated the UK’s top streaming platforms.

The winners

The winning and highly commended platforms were decided by both their overall customer satisfaction scores (star ratings out of 5) and their recommendation scores (the percentage of survey respondents who would recommend the brand to a friend). Read more on our methodology and see our full results below.

Now, let’s flick over to our winners.

Customer satisfaction ratings methodology

We asked streaming account holders to rate their satisfaction with the service they had received from their provider, and also whether they would recommend that provider to a friend.

We have shown both results for the brands listed in the table above, and used the customer satisfaction star ratings to decide the winners of our awards (where there was a draw on the star ratings score, we used the “would recommend” percentage as a tie-breaker).

Our independent survey of 1,989 streamers was carried out in December 2021 – read full details of our methodology here.
