The survey results revealed that 33% of respondents subscribe to a video-on-demand streaming service, while 50% have a DStv subscription.

The majority of these subscribers – 62% – are Netflix subscribers, while 20% have a ShowMax subscription.

An interesting finding was that most video-on-demand subscribers make use of a VPN service in order to gain access to content from other regions.
