After Battlestar Galactica finsihed its run, I really wanted to get the soundtrack to season 4. So I looked around for months after it finished airing to find it would come out on a specific date - January last year IIRC.
When the date came, I searched on Amazon and found it - I could pre-order it - it was $16.99. $16.99, i thought? That can't be right - I live in the UK. Oops, I'm on .com instead of .co.uk. Silly me!
So I went to amazon .co.uk and searched for it. Sure enough, it was there - albeit with a release date 1 month later and the price was £27.99.
Nearly 3 times the price (once currency conversion was taken in to consideration plus the conversion fee of course), and released a month late?
So I went to .com again and tried to order it from the US. But I wasn't allowed to because "this content is not available in your region" and gave me a helpful link back to the UK websites.
So I downloaded it for free v0v
I was quite willing and prepared to buy the damn music with real money - money that'd go to the studios - that's why I was on amazon to begin with.
But then I thought fuck you, when I thought about it.
If they hadn't tried to fuck me over with the pricing and the wait, they'd have got some money, but now they don't, and I have the music.
They do this to themselves.
