*meh* I took a quick look and only saw kiddie channels. I might be tempted if the content was good, *and* available in Canada. If it's anything like Netflix, it would be a waste of money - copyright laws mean that a lot of content isn`t available outside the US.

Yeah I will pay for a lot of BBC content.
Don't own a TV, happy to pick and pay for my choices.

This will benefit pips who spend a lot of time & money to make great tutorials. Why should they work for free?

How will effect IAB if Jenna Marbles is a paid channel
Guess you can`t link these channel either.

It's exactly as Gerry1of1 stated with satellite raido, CATV, etc.

Also, many people don`t realize that they`re really being screwed by digital media. The film/record companies love digital media because it eliminates the buying/selling/trading of used CD`s & DVD`s. It`s perfectly legal to sell or share a used CD/LP/DVD with a friend or to sell it your local used record store. The record companies already got paid the first time around so they don`t even make a penny on the sale of used media. If you take the same digital content from said CD/LP/DVD and try to sell or share it, that`s illegal, even though it`s the same thing as selling/sharing a physical CD/LP/DVD.

Pay? Not a chance. Though this is an ideal time to launch an alternative service! I might try that.
