Online TV Piracy Forecasts

Online TV Piracy Forecasts

Revenues lost to online piracy will nearly double between 2016 and 2022 to $51.6 billion, according to the Online TV Piracy Forecasts report. Covering 138 countries, these forecasts include revenues lost to TV episodes and movies – but not other sectors such as sports or pay TV. 

Simon Murray, Principal Analyst at Digital TV Research, said: “Piracy will never be eradicated. However, it is not all bad news. Piracy growth rates will decelerate as more effective government action is taken and as the benefits of legal choices become more apparent.” 

He continued: “Legitimate revenues from OTT TV episodes and movie overtook online piracy losses as far back as 2013. The gap between the two measures is widening.”
