And can someone please explain to me why ANYONE would use this service??? Maybe I dont understand the article.

Lmao Dishnetwork already has many Same day dvd movie releases on PPV going back for months now for $1.99 all day. And many people are on FTA satelite so all free. Do I care if people are doing this?? NO!!!. China is now getting SAME DAY dvd releases as same day they hit the theaters so question becomes why a new movie $2 there and here 19.98? Well that darn inflation People are starting to wake up I guess every company LIES to you even the ones you like and support Ford- Build’s cars here but yet their European models are very different there than here… they get 2 times more fuel economy ( government mandated) and much more power with half the friken engine L or size… WTF is up with that!!! In fact all the big 3 Jokers all do this shit!!! Let the burners burn make these idiot companies realize once you pay for it YOU OWN IT!!! :g
