BEV spent Millions upon millions for this new some what secure N3 BUT it did not cost them a cent cause they will pass it on to us the customers. Seems simple right.
Your logic is facile and defies all rational thought.
Currently, there are 1.8 million Bev subs and until this week perhaps 300,000 pirates. Total Bell TV revenue is maybe $1.3 billion annually. ($600 per sub average).
If piracy continued to mount so there were 300,000 subs and 1.8 million pirates the price would go up to $3,600 per sub per year.
If that were top happen, do you really think people would pay? Of course not, they would leave Bell and it would be out of business.
The reality is that if the numbers fell to 1.5 million subs and 700,000 pirates, Bell TV would likely go bankrupt.
What pirates never understand is two simple economic concepts
iminishing marginal returns and the Free Rider phenomena.
