Netflix vs. Hulu vs. Cable TV: Online Streaming Services Surpassing Cable Providers but Users Sharing Accounts

According to a report by Dallas-based Parks Associates, more than 10 percent of households are using piggy-back subscriptions to view their shows and movies. This bootleg version though is not technically illegal, if the account's owner allows it, given that they allowed a certain amount of authorized users on streaming services such as Netflix.

The research by the firm has revealed that Netflix has an 11 percent piggy-back rate. Hulu Plus is close behind that number at 10 percent and Amazon Prime is at 5 percent. All of these aforementioned services are considered a buffet style streaming service, or "watch as much as you want."
The research also indicated that 22 percent of those numbers are with young persons aged 18-24.
