Netflix may be losing $192M per month from piracy, cord cutting study claims
As many as 1 in 5 people today are mooching off of someone else’s account when streaming video from Netflix Hulu  or Amazon Video, according to a new study from CordCutting.com. Of these, Netflix tends to be pirated for the longest period — 26 months, compared with 16 months for Amazon Prime Video or 11 months for Hulu. That could be because Netflix freeloaders often mooch off their family instead of a friend — 48 percent use their parents’ login, while another 14 percent use their sister or brother’s credentials, the firm found.
