and if you think that the licensing and rules for such decryption and access are easy, well you'd be wrong. They are as complex if not more than the 'bag of hurt' that is still Blu-ray. Especially the nonsense that access contracts have become. The delay of Fox movies for iTunes on the Cloud was cake to solve compared to the spider web of poop that is broadcast contracts. It's a seriously ugly mess.

16 years of working in TV and being unemployed more than once because of that fact of life and you'll really be depressed. Even more so when you find out that literally tens of thousands of letters, emails etc were sent out by folks claiming to watch the show faithfully and it doesn't matter because they aren't in the Sample. 

 

More than once I've had friends and family ask me why I stay in a business that runs this way and all I can tell them is that if I and those that think like me just give up and leave, it will definitely never change. And then I go get drunk and mourn that I'm out of work yet again.
