 I claim no great insight. Everything I know about Apple Market Economics is from the discussions on Asymco.com, by Horace Dediu.
 who is 'they?'   Apple… no.   The local Franchise, yes, maybe, and that's their prerogative.   Remember, blackouts are for one reason… free or semi-free (cable) TV keeps people out of the stands.   If the stream is Pay Per View at $10 vs a $16 bleacher seat, the team may think that's close enough, and the game won't be blacked out for purchased games. NFL Football is the only sport I know that blacks out as a rule… that's a national rule (they want full stadiums for the...
GPS.  If app driven the app can require location services.  then they  know where you are, and that's all they need.

 because Apple is caught be tween a old school manufacturer, and a new school 'e-commerce'  potential, and is being seen as the worst of the former (expensive in eventual commodity markets (PCs, Phones, Tablets), thus a governor on long term profits) , and none of the latter (ITMS, App Store, iBooks, in App purchases, iAds, iCloud).  Why, because no business has spanned that before, and the law of large numbers block analysts from seeing past the leverage this technology...
 figure 2 copies per plane. you're correct… the trees airlines kill is rainforest shrinking.    Airlines know that every pound is worth so many gallons per mile.  pound.   while I can't help when 340lb Uncle Louie flies to Amsterdam, I can control the number of pillows, blankets, types of pop, and yes, maps, nav charts, airport layouts, and weather updates.   50 lbs is a lot, and can be replaced with revenue generating cargo (mail, lobster, whatever… now that planes are...
