Is The Increasingly Crowded Streaming Marketplace Going to Turn Consumers Back to Piracy?

In the short term, consumers are more than happy to keep paying for multiple services. According to a report published by Parks Associates in June 2021, 46 percent of US homes with broadband-level Internet connections subscribed to four or more streaming services. This more than doubles last year’s number of 22 percent and dwarfs numbers from years prior. Granted, the COVID-19 pandemic had a lot to do with the rise in numbers, but why did those same people opt to subscribe rather than pirate? The answer could lie in the rise of ad-supported options.
