  • SVOD has an even gender split while XXX skews male slightly – XXX Rippers are the piracy app of choice for Digital Natives with XXX penetration among under XXX top XXX most pirated TV shows are all available on SVOD services but they are fragmented across XXX different services
  • It would cost XXX a month to subscribe to all XXX SVOD services required to watch the XXX most pirated shows
