I mentioned this in another thread, but the numbers are showing that piracy is back on the rise and is likely due to streaming being split between more players in the market, and people being unable to keep legitimate access to everything they want to watch (The same shit that is a large reason people cut the cord from cable) within a reasonable overall cost.

I only pay for Prime, and wouldn't bother with Netflix if I wasn't sharing it with a family member. It would take a miracle for me to be willing to pay for another service instead of just torrenting the rest.

Also, those LoL numbers are bonkers
