Now the bad news: you're going to pay for EVERYTHING you download.

5G is years away from being nationwide and functioning. Like in the rest of the world there will be a few select locations with it and the reach is small and weak. It’s going to be a while.

These giant corporations are steadfast in their old ways. The rest of the world has moved on, leaving them clinging to the only revenue method they know how to do. They can never stop or control free streaming. So, maybe they should hire a young 20-something kid to think outside the box for them. How to make money in this new internet world? I can think of 2 or 3 methods off the top of my head. They already make enormous amount of money, even with the pirate sites.

Isn't it great that something designed to be resistant to nuclear attack and other forms of sabotage actually works

Cockroaches are also resistant to nuclear attack as has been found during atomic trials but not sure about the "...other forms of sabotage".

'nuf sed.

GEO restrictions and very limited offering on Netflix causes me to also see things elsewhere. Even I do pay where I can.

For Thais the niche business is their lack of ENG skills, these sites offer hassle free Thai subtitles etc. without needing knowledge or software.
Many Thais I know do not care about the <deleted>ty resolution or quality at all, as long they can understand it.

 

My ex wife said she couldn't see a difference when I upgraded from her VCD setup to blu ray

very rarely download movies anymore, maybe once a year

 

production companies focus more on political correctness than quality of content 

 

youtube is the way forward

Evening Mr Trink....

Actually it was "'nuff said" but I suppose "any comment would be superfluous".

Nail on the head.  If the 'entertainment' industry was rational and flexible (and not corrupted) they would have realised they are Beta in a VHS world (VGA in a HDMI world).  But they refuse to change and they continue to try more and more ways to protect their old ways that provides the $millions to their actors, producers, owners, etc. etc. 

 

There are still some people who are prepared to pay for the 'movie theatre' experience - but just like the dying video rental industry, they will surely go the way of the dinosaor.  Here in Aus it costs us $18 each for a movie ticket - that is $36 to watch a movie that in a few weeks we can download for free and watch on our 65" screen in 1080 will full digital sound (and with no aholes on the phone or eating chips and other 'issues').

X265 1080 blue ray rips came torrenting down stream - alongside a pirate, into the Bay.

I loved the TV show The Streets of San Francisco. It's older than I am, but I caught the reruns as a kid in the 80's. About 5 years ago someone put up nearly all the episodes on YouTube. It was great, I was plowing through them. Then eventually came the copyright <deleted>, and they were all gone.

 

Why? A lot of people were watching. Why not put up some ads and send the revenue to the copyright holders. Seems like good business to me. But apparently they still think they're worth more. Come on, it's a 45 year old TV show. The actors and everyone involved have long since been compensated, or are dead. My only option are the DVD box sets? It's 2019. Last time I was in the States, the DVD sections in the stores are either gathering dust or being phased out. They gotta be streamed. But you can't charge Disney+ subscriptions for everything. Some things are just worth the ad revenue.

5G in Thailand, actually widespread and working--hard to get much 3G or 4G to work on a consistent basis.

There is no 5G yet. What they call 4G+ is actually 4G or LTE.

Sounds right. The government has yet to auction off the contracts for 5G networks.
