For people to be able to support content (and in the process, providers), it has to be released and readily available. Several times lately, I've found I've had to import things I'd perfectly happy to buy direct, or "new", but the outcome of that is that the makers still probably won't see a penny of the money paid, but I have bought it.|
While the licenses are tied up in antiquated region-designated manner from a two tier broadcast standard, that's largely out-of-use, they the publishers can be preventing me from being able to support them in the way they ask.
I can choose to buy from an import shop, that's an option. I can choose as another remedy, to not enjoy or watch that content at all, that's another possibility.
But, crucially, there is NO remedy available where a service is provided, that I can access and enjoy, in return for their financial profit. How's that sustainable, and why aren't the pro camp taking measures to facilitate the smooth flow of content, to people?
