8-Day Delay on Hulu Triggers Piracy Surge

Imagine that, as soon as the eight day delay went into effect for Fox programs on Hulu, piracy surged drastically. Kinda funny that we aren't talking about movies or paid content, these are regular TV shows that are being pirated.

It’s been a week since Fox stopped offering free access to its TV-shows the day after they air on television. The TV-studio took this drastic step in the hope of getting more people to watch their shows live and thus make more revenue. TV-viewers, however, are outraged by the decision and have massively turned to pirated sources to watch their favorite shows.
