BitTorrent is getting killed by Netflix in America
Over in Americaland, people are paying for Netflix subscriptions in droves. In fact, recently, Netflix nearly doubled the number of new subscribers from 1.7 to 3.3 million.
In total, there's 22.8 million people, paying to stream movies in the US.
Does this mean movie piracy is on the wane? Of course, there are still torrent sites knocking around, but it seems that Netflix have hit on a model that is superior to the illegal counterpart.
And with it doing so well, it appear that Netflix has an eye on spreading itself around the world. Like Spotify seemed to answer the need for people who wanted music online, Netflix appears to be doing the same for film.
Do you want to see it on these shores or are you happy streaming and downloading from sites that are, shall we say, residing in a legal grey area?
