Dispatches From The Front

Hurd spoke of “Walking Dead” fans she’s engaged with via Twitter who didn’t even realize they were illegally downloading content due to slick pirate-streaming sites that mimic legitimate services."
Walking Dead EP didn't say that piracy occured despite freely available episodes, but that viewers were unaware that streaming options were piracy since it was provided by online servies aping legitmate sources.
AMCTV.com definetly does not have Walking Dead available without cable company authentication, and therefore Walking Dead and Breaking Bad are still behind garden walls. Unlike over-the-air broadcasters that allow free ad-supported streaming from their websites, basic cable has a greater demand to be pirated which would be alleviated by offering ad-supported over-the-web alternative.

I guess I don't want new and legacy media to be mutually exclusive. I will likely always want the nearly passive experience of flipping on a satellite or cable receiver and consuming whatever the borg has for me at any given time. Rightly or wrongly, that curated (albeit lowest common denominator based) experience will always be a like a warm soothing stream of water across my weary brain. Regardless, until all favs are live via IPTV total "severation" of the cord probably not going to happen.

As a fan, I wanted to help you with the new show and remembered Brain saying he doesn't have the newest AppleTV. So I came up with an idea, instead of sponsoring the show I could buy a new AppleTV for Brian to try out for 30 days, after which he could then take the unit and autograph it in silver sharpie and have Tom autograph it as well and give it out as a prize to one of the people who support the show via Patreon or something like that. For me the easiest thing would be to have Brian send me an email address to send him the $99 via Pay Pal or If Brian has a shipping address he doesn't mind sharing I can order it and have it sent directly to him. It’s up to him.

Is it pirating if it is also available for free?
