So, keep digging in heels leaving potential consumers with no legal alternative to get your content... Seems like a sustainable model.
Its quite sustainable.
The average American Household is not going to cut the cord.
Until broadcasters and networks buy out the caps and throttling and assure us of 2K streaming speeds, until the IPTV / OTT STB can be purchased at Best Buy cheap and doesn't have Moto-like bugs, and until the audience affirms its willingness to pay MORE for ala-carte IP delivery, HBO et al will go with the business model they know.
