Re: Get it right
There are three main barriers that remain.
The first is not availability. This is obvious but the specific problem is not just whether some content is available in your country, but which particular service it is available on.
If you want to be able to (legally) consume whatever TV shows and movies you want, you realistically have to pay for multiple streaming services. This is not only a pain, having to switch between them when searching for content, but also multiplies the cost.
The second barrier is DRM. How this inconveniences consumers depends on the content but take, for example, digital comics. Marvel Unlimited is, I think, great value, but the app was rubbish. Apparently it is better now but, regardless, you are tied into their DRM system which means your reading experience is at the mercy of Marvel and whatever their executives and designers think is a good idea/will make them more money.
But even just buying a Bluray from the store - you get home and put it in the player, all legal, and you are subject to not only multiple ugly and unskippable warnings but unskippable trailers* and even, in a recent purchase, an unskippable advertisement for how great Blu-Ray is. Not to mention the (often unskippable) animated introductions to the main menu, usually consisting of scenes from the movie itself. Unless you have a special player that allows you to skip these, it can sometimes be several minutes before you can actually start a movie you have paid for.
The last barrier is Internet connectivity.
Yes, almost everyone has Internet connectivity and yes, you need Internet connectivity to illegally download a movie. BUT, when you illegally download it, you can do so ahead of time and, usually, in a piecemeal fashion. Also, once you have downloaded it, you're good to go without any further connectivity.
There is also a fourth barrier, which is the data collection that occurs with streaming services, but that only seems to be a barrier to a few, privacy conscious individuals. Sadly, most people have no qualms about telling everyone their watching/listening/reading habits - either not realising just how much profiling can be done from that information, or just not caring.
Of course, not all of the above are issues for every type of media and service but they are all barriers that simply do not exist with 'pirated' material.
