Study: Limited SVoD access aids piracy growth

The growth of OTT services may be accompanied by a rise in pirated content, particularly where access to those services may be restricted, according to the findings of a group of academic researchers.

The researchers studied the effects of Netflix and its growth in 40 Asian countries. They also studied one country where access to Netflix was restricted, which is where they found that the search for pirated content increased.
