Older age groups are by far the worst offenders when it comes to using Kodi boxes to stream pirated video
Kodi boxes are one of the most popular ways to watch pirated video content in the UK, with one in ten of those who admit to watching pirated content using a Kodi box to do so, according to a new study.
That’s a far higher proportion than in other countries. The second highest percentage was in Portugal, where 6% of consumers use Kodi to access pirated content.
However, the most striking finding from the survey of more than 25,000 adults in 30 countries by digital security firm Irdeto is that older age groups are by far the worst offenders.
The highest percentage of Kodi users in the UK were in the 35-44 and 55+ age groups, at 18% each. This is in stark contrast to the 3% of 18 to 24-year-olds using a Kodi box to stream pirated content.
In other words, over-55s are six times more likely to use Kodi boxes to watch illegal content than young adults
