amstelveen - Almost half of the 18-year-old Dutch people pay for watching movies or series through an internet service, according to figures from market researcher GfK. This happens mainly through subscriptions to video services such as Netflix or Videoland, but also through loose sales.
On-line video replaces traditional television only for a part, but mainly makes sure that more is watched. Young people from eighteen to 34 years watch video on video daily for three hours and forty minutes. 55-plus people get up to 40 minutes a day.
Of the subscribers to a video service, 31 percent even have a subscription to multiple services. For cable operators, online video services can pose a threat. Two out of five people with a subscription to a video service saved the package that was taken at the cable. In people without a video service subscription, that is 15 percent.
