Only 24% of Dutch still download free content

Sunday 25 February 2018 | 12:35 CET | News
Only 24 percent of Dutch people have downloaded video content such as films and series, music or games for free during the past year, according to the latest study from Telecompaper. In 2013, 41 percent did so regularly. Streaming video and music services such as Netflix and Spotify have grown strongly since then, while anti-piracy group Brein has become increasingly tougher on illegal downloads. Men still download a lot more than women.
