In other words, every distributor and retailer is trying to be "exclusive" but all you end up with is lop-sided, extremely lacking libraries. So I can
sign up to half a dozen services, pay for thousands of media I do not want, or am not interested in... But I still need all six because each one has a
single release I'm interested in....
And they wonder why people click "download" instead...
Absolutely, plus you have say Universal signing deals with netflix, Lionsgate being exclusive to amazon prime, 20th century fox doing a deal with
LoveFilm.... so you never get all of the content, it's so fragmented.
Which is why things like popcorn time, XBMC + loads of others have become so popular.
It's not that people mind paying or like stealing, but they are FORCED into seeking content from illegal places or watching streamed content from free
sites because it is ALL there, all tv shows, all movies.
If all these companies stop putting the mighty $$ first and actually cared about building up a huge customer base and cared about providing a great,
all encompassing service, it would reduce piracy massively, to the point that it would almost be negligible and they would make even more money.
Their own greed is costing them money.... ahh the irony.
