Sigh. This is a big “WHY” customers pay for netflix, get premium content, such as TV-Shows, not having to wait and so on.
OMG, how greedy can the networks get. I know a lot of affiliates and stations in Europe, and else where want to be able to show the TV-series and have some sort of exclusive right to it etc. Cashing in on commercials and so on.
But the whole point of netflix is that people who would otherwise pirate material now can pay and get it, in a legal way. Now they are just going back to how it was, common, what are you playing at, the Internet is not a baby in diapers any more. The only thing I can think of is that it is not netflix that is doing this by choice but rather because the networks want it.
Get with the program or die, I way.
