Maybe Rayy : I hate it when I can't watch something just because I live in Australia. By the time you can watch something over here you've already had it spoiled for you online.

Dane Jordan : Hululu

humanix : "These are sites you definitely shouldn't go to.. without a vpn" I lol'd

Kataroku : You can also borrow movies and TV series boxsets from your local library - for free, even. Won't help you much without a physical player though.

W0Y4K : "Streaming sites like these." Thank you, good sir. Also, I really don't understand why region locking still exists in this day and age. Having lived outside of the US, but mostly watching American entertainment, it's insane to me and extremely infuriating. If you have it on your service, let me fucking watch it or download it. *Money is money.*

Asher Burns : Solid points, mate.

kikowatzy1 : "Wait between 3 weeks and never", LOL that's hilarious =)

J. Ramsey : Netflix has enough content to keep you watching for about 2 days every month when they drop new releases. Other than that its all shit or you've seen it by now.

gusugsugus : wait.. you use a vpn to illegally stream it, when you can use the vpn to just buy it from amazon us? huh?

Abdullah Sediqi : When people pull their movies off Netflix I refuse to pay for it since they are being greedy

boldhack : never pay for media.

Taine : a good vpn = why pay for multiple streaming services!

Macario Patrick : What is this guy talking about? I don't remember piracy ever being on the decline.

Baron Blueberry : Love the video and love the content here. Looking forward to more and seeing what else you will put out. Can you attempt to solve the issue of rising rental prices due to the lack of housing thanks to the increase of AirBnB conversions or lack there of.

Raitis Veinbahs : How exactly is thepiratebay.org down?

WXSEDY : I think you're missing a bigger picture here (not to be punful). You don't seem to want to acknowledgement a fundamental known fact when it comes to a free economy - supply and demand. Quite simply, these "unreasonable" rates will continue and probably even get worse as long as there are people able and willing to PAY them. Remember: You can't legislate common sense. You can only legislate consequences when people fail to use common sense or allow nature to take it's course (& let them go broke to where they CAN'T pay). So what are we "reasonable" people supposed to do about it? Impose laws/rules/mandates on prices that someone like you (or me) says is reasonable? No! About the only "solution" is to shame people who pay those over priced amounts in hopes that they use what little common sense they might have and stop paying (and perhaps not allow monopolies to exist too). Though I'm pretty sure there will be considerable blow back when any shaming begins because no one wants to admit or be exposed for being stupid -- nor turn off those (needless) electronic drugs! And when you think about it, how stupid is it to stare are a glowing box for hours on end anyway? I might even say, think outside the box! Because thinking inside (the box) is not made for thinking.

Coffee and Nuance : Excellent video, as always. Some of the best shows and movies I've seen are unavailable in my country. This will eventually get sorted out, once someone figures out how to make more money from it. Bevan- are you using plugins like VidIQ and TubeBuddy to explore how others are tagging their videos to get the most traffic? These free services can really help you learn the best practices for how to label, tag, and title videos for the best chance of showing up in the algorithm. I tell you this, because I think your videos are great and I want them to be seen by a wider audience. If you have any questions, hit me up.

dbrownsd : It's not as much about the cost of Neflix or Prime, of the fact that some shows I had to pay per episode. I quit pirating because Netflix and Hulu made it more convenient for me to get the content. Sure I lost some, but I was overall OK with that. Now I'm paying $15 / mo for Netflix, $11 / mo for Hulu, whatever we want to split from my prime membership for that cost.. Oh, want the new Star Trek? Add $8 / mo for CBS's streaming service. Now Disney is starting to pull their IP from streamers ahead of starting their own streaming service. Several other networks are starting to look at their own service. Next thing you know we're looking at paying more for all these different streaming services than a high tier cable package, and the management of all those different accounts, and the convenience / cost factor is gone. The industry did it to themselves. Ahoy matey.

Litteral Shoe : hate living in a developed country and having worse Internet than Africa

B. Winky : How do you not own a DVD player?!? I understand DVDs are poop quality and not worth the money... But you don't have any PC or Gaming console that has an optical drive?!? Seriously the Wii could play DVDs

TruthSeeker : I pirate windows,game movies,softwares literally everything.There is no anti piracy law in India.Its a hobby.Please don't be upset.Not all people have money to keep buying video games.

SuperWolfkin : But your computer can play dvds. You can ripe them.super easy with handbrake and.then plex to your.tv. I vehemently disagree with you suggestion that you needed to buy a dvd player -------------- Online prices for digital episodes are insane and renting digital sucks. Blockbuster let me rent for a whole week now I only get 24 hours. It's insane.
