According to the recent study, almost 1/3 of adults view about 280m pirated films and TV shows annually, and they stream more often than download. Still, the good news is that legitimate services enjoy better figures – around 71% of Internet users use Netflix and similar services.


Sweden is known in the file-sharing world as The Pirate Bay motherland and home for of the world’s most hardcore file-sharers. This is why the current trends on its local media consumption habits are so interesting. The recent study covered both legitimate and unauthorized services and based on 1,000 interviews of citizens aged between 16 and 79.

So, more than 2/3 of respondents confirmed they pay for such services as Netflix and HBO. 25% of them use such services on a daily basis and 35% watch video content a few times a week. On the other hand, only 29% of all respondents, mostly the young, admitted to using illegal services to watch movies and TV shows – 60% of 16 to 29-year-olds confessed in pirating.

The statistic says that about 280 million films and TV shows per year are watched illegally in the country, while people said that they would have paid for around 1/3 of them if they had no other way to obtain content. Torrents networks are very popular in Europe, but in Sweden streaming now is more popular than downloading, with 19% of respondents streaming pirated content and 17% downloading it. The users who use both legal and illegal services watch every third piece of content illegally, an average of 4 films and 7 TV shows per month.

In the meantime, 60% of those surveys admitted they consider pirating “wrong”. 40% agreed with this statement, but still used illegal services.

When asked about the ways to solve the problem, 43% of respondents indicated that Internet service providers should make efforts to reduce the numbers of pirates – 24% suggested site blocking, and 19% – a notification scheme.

As for anti-piracy law, only 10% of respondents believe that it will solve the problem, with just 4% thinking that stricter punishments can help. While the website blocking remains firmly on the agenda in the country, the agencies representing content industry will still rely on success in the courts, because there is clearly no appetite for punishing the public.

analogkid6103 avatarJust an observation from an uploader and a file sharer, I am certain that these surveys and such that celebrate the numbers of people stealing and profiting are in no way beneficial to file sharing per se.
And when these Most pirated Movies of the week numbers come out it only fans the forrest fire of the opponents of sharing and of course the glorification of "Pirating" is a misnomer for as a file sharer I have never made 1 cent.
Nor would I accept one if offered.
Sharing should be glorified, pirating is for profit, the true definition of, should not be.
But no one can hear me...... yet.
Later I appear: So hows that pirate thing working out for ya?
And what will your answer be?
