SEARCHES FOR TV SHOWS AND MOVIES ON NET­FLIX BEAT PI­RATE AL­TER­NA­TIVES, SAYS GOOGLE

MORE WAYS THAN ONE TO GET YOUR EN­TER­TAIN­MENT.

TechLife Australia - - HOTSPOT - [ SS ]

It’s some­thing that’s been said a lot — make TV shows and movies more ac­ces­si­ble and piracy will re­duce. To test that the­ory, Google un­der­took a study in one of the world’s hottest piracy spots, Brazil, and found that stream­ing ser­vices like Net­flix are giv­ing peo­ple ac­cess to in­ter­est­ing li­braries on easy-to-use plat­forms, thus spread­ing aware­ness that there are al­ter­na­tives to piracy. Net­flix isn’t nec­es­sar­ily re­duc­ing piracy it­self, but nine out of 10 users say they are “ex­tremely sat­is­fied” with the ser­vice.
