Take my money – or not

| 1 Comment

I had a netflix subscription, but then I switched to linux – and netflix doesn’t work on linux because of crappy DRM stuff.

I thought about getting an Amazon Prime subscription, but the instant video selection is beyond terrible.

I signed up for Hulu Plus, but I’ll have to cancel my subscription once I move – it’s not available in Canada.

Do the tv and movie companies want people to steal from them?

  1. THEY DO. I have been through this exact scenario (minus the moving to Canada bit, but before Hulu Plus was around) and arrived at this exact conclusion.

    Also, bonus “they want you to steal it” points if the movies/TV you want to watch aren’t distributed in the US, or only have subscription options for those who *already* subscribe to their TV service.

I'm listening!
