Re: buy direct..
Old news. Legal streaming has supplanted P2P traffic for a long time now. The point is people will pay for content if you make it easily available, that's why they pirated, not because they were morally corrupt.
There is disruption going on in cable TV. The old bundling and hard to get scheme is going to come to a tragic end. Once that happens broadcast becomes unicast, and that means big network upgrades to handle it.
The good news is that HSI can be heavily biased for download to add capacity since streaming is normally ingress. P2P killed upload and that is what was really causing HSI non fibre vendors a problem. Also they had to pay transit fees whereas your major streaming vendors have CDN in cloud which costs them nothing to deliver.
