We are living in a golden age of illegal TV streaming — and it’s putting a dent in pay-TV audiences

It is difficult to put numbers on how big illegal TV streaming has become — it’s illegal, after all. But it is clearly huge. [BBC News] reported that some individual sites are publishing 8 million TV streams per month. The Daily Mail has reported that 1 million people per month are watching the Premier League illegally on streaming sites. In the US, of those who watched the presidential debates online, 41% who watched did so on illegal streams, according to VFT Solutions, Inc., a company that protects media IP rights. – Jim Edwards, Business Insider http://ift.tt/2f3ijW3
