The problem is that finding alternatives requires work and patience. Work to find them and patience while waiting for them to show up on streaming sites like Netflix. Even then, not all content becomes available in all regions. When content owners make their products affordable and easily accessible for everyone, the piracy problem will be solved. They already understand this but insist on inflating prices with price fixing in more affluent regions. The studios practically gave away movies in China to combat piracy. Even when they explore more efficient ways to distribute their content in NA, they keep prices at artificially high levels and pocket the savings rather than passing them on to consumers.
