Around 50% of Malaysian online consumers use illegal streaming websites

Tuesday 3 September 2019 | 13:56 CET | News
Around 23 percent of Malaysian online consumers have a TV box which can be used to stream pirated TV and video content, according to a survey commissioned by the Asia Video Industry Association's Coalition Against Piracy (CAP) and conducted by YouGov. These Illicit Streaming Devices (ISDs) allow users to access hundreds of pirated TV channels and VoD content, usually with a low annual subscription fee. These TV boxes often come pre-loaded with illegal applications allowing 'plug-and-play' access to pirated content.
