Re: If only
Spot on. I have no desire to break the law, and am more than happy to pay, once, for a film. Unfortunately, I would also like to watch that film how I want, when I want, where I want. The US film industry seems hellbent on making sure that I cannot.
Take Ultraviolet, for example. A good idea badly implemented. Buy a film, and get to watch a digital copy when I want. Except, it doesn't work. I can watch all my Ultraviolet films on the Flixster Android app, but, I can't cast it to Chromecast here in the UK. Apparently you can if you're in the US. Why? I can cast from the Blinkbox app, but, they don't have all the studios signed up, so some of my films aren't available on Ultraviolet on Blinkbox. What's even more annoying is that Blinkbox will happily sell me the non-Ultraviolet digital version of the missing films.
So, my only options, if I want to watch a digital copy on Chromecast of those films, is to either rip a DVD or download from some dodgy site.
I don't want to break the law, but, the film studios seem to want me to.
