jQuery(window).on('load', function() { var theConfig;theConfig = kenyn_piegraph_stats([66.6, 12.8, 2.4, 18.2], ["Free only", "Fixed-price", "Pay-per-view", "None"], 'What kind of internet video delivery service do you use?', 'myChart1-use-internet-video-service.png');jQuery('.chart-canvas').show(); var ctx = document.getElementById('myChart1-use-internet-video-service.png').getContext("2d"); new Chart(ctx, theConfig); });

This report from ICT Research and Consulting has figures I’ve been wanting to see, taking a look at the use of internet video delivery services.

As a comparison, in the USA 58% of all households have some paid-for service, with the top service being Netflix, with 50% of US households having a subscription.

I don’t have any (and only rarely watch YouTube) and quite frankly I don’t think I could find either the time or energy to watch anything, and I don’t feel my life is in any way empty by not having watched Game of Thrones!

Research results

First, there were statistics and predictions for usage of fixed-price services and pay-per-view:

Paid video distribution service users and predictions

Note that for the next question, it is not clear how someone would answer if they used both fixed-price and pay-per-view services.

@nifty released this timely survey on North Korea.

It is interesting to see what bothers the Japanese about North Korea. Note that in Q1 the wooden boats refers to wooden fishing boats that get swept to the Japanese coast.

Here’s a detail from a mural in a film studio in North Korea – I think the guy with the rifle is Japanese holding North Koreans prisoner:
