I mean, maybe a thousand bucks a year for cable was a good deal when it first came out. But with Netflix, Hulu, Amazon Prime and Redbox and all these other services, premium channels… ARE YOU KIDDING ME?
The internet revolutionized entertainment for good, because it's opened up all the borders. There are people all over the world creating content and uploading files onto the internet. And different countries have different laws on how this should be dealt with.
While all this confusion is a big problem for multi-billion dollar conglomerates, you and I get a huge benefit. We can gain access to all kinds of content entertainment companies have under lock and key, using software that's totally legal.
