Re: It's not hard to get it without a subscription.

There is no "you'll" in this. You just have to know someone who is willing to share their account login. I don't have a cable subscription but my mom does so I just use her account.

This is one of the reasons content owners are leery about providing their content over the internet.

I'll feel guilty when ESPN's business model of fucking small providers changes.

Those of us "borrowing" a friend's account because it is not an option for us are still watching the commercials and advertising. So what's the quarrel again?

Not if you're using a DVR and skipping the commercials. Also the quarrel is you're not paying for cable. Thus ESPN is not getting it's $10 from the cable company from you being a subscriber.
