HBO Go adds AirPlay support, definitely no online-only offer "Kessler also reiterated the notion that HBO wont offer a standalone HBO Go online subscription any time soon. The economics today are not particularly compelling"
Because having million of people torrent your stuff instead of giving you $15 a month is better economics.
We can certainly do it when we want to, Kessler said. Today, thats not the case.
And when you finally figure out how many millions you're losing out on it will be too late. Just like the music industry. After a decade of basically teaching people how to pirate and get music for free because of their ways, music has never fully recovered. Once people have been downloading long enough you're not going to convince them to not do it anymore. And they will teach their kids how to pirate too.
