What I want to do is watch new content commercial free and for a small fee at the same time as it is released on TV or at the theater. That can be on a series, episode or subscription basis. That is rarely available. It's a model that would not be difficult to implement. I believe HBO does this with their US service and Netflix essentially does it with their original content. The studios have experimented with this in the past but it's not widely available. Now that most older adults have abandoned movie theaters and younger adults are not to subscribing traditional broadcasting services, it makes sense. As usual, the broadcasting industry is years behind modern trends. It's just too bad that many people resort to piracy to fill the gap. Broadcasters and studios should be developing ways to turn this into a marketing opportunity, not a way of punishing people who want to consume their products.
