Gfy whoever is still forcing this (HBO, cable/satellite companies, whoever). Till I can buy the channel without paying some asshole middle men thousands of extra dollars, I'll continue to pirate what I want from your station. As soon as you make it available to purchase your station or shows digitally, legally, easily, and timely, I'll be at the front of the line to do so.
Oh, and to head a few things off at the pass....
-No, $5 an episode isn't reasonable
-If it's online more than a couple of hours after air, I no longer care
-No, ads aren't acceptable if I'm paying already
-Having a version locked to a website/service (vs getting a real download) is only reasonable if it's a low, reasonable monthly fee for everything you guys make (see: what the WWE channel is doing right now)
