Isn't the theft of intellectual property/copyright protections one of the main reasons we are in a trade war with China?  I believe the vast majority of the members of this board are ethical.  NHL.TV is $116 for the season.  That's like a buck fifty a game when you factor out the NBCSN games.  Surely, our ethics can't be compromised for $116 a year. 

Right is right, wrong is wrong.  Sorry, I guess I have a stick up my ass.

For what it's worth, the NHL.TV package is useless to me, because in Rochester I cannot watch the games live.

I dont feel bad for these companies who in large part caused it to happen themselves by gouging consumers for many many decades with nonstop price increases. Their greed is what caused this to happen and now they can deal with the fallout from that.  

Software companies once tried to fight it...now most have given up. Microsoft secretly encourages it because the use of a product regardless of legality drives market share and increases future demand.

Music companies once tried to fight it including suing users in court...now they have given up.

The internet is too powerful and too all encompassing for these companies to fight it. It is up to them to change the way they do business to take advantage of the rules.

Like Swiss watchmakers, adapt to the new norms and technologies or perish.

Some perspective...

There are many reasons why those company continue to raise their prices. First, it's those who create the content who demand a higher price. If the NHL demands top dollar for its product, then those who wish to license it have to find a way to recoup their money. They are not a public service. Once they figure that out, they also need to pay their employees, who, like you and many others, want a cost of living increase every year. So, if they don't raise their prices, how do they pay them? Greed is what causes this to happen, but in the absence of that greed the free-loading society would have no content to watch because it would not be worth anyone's time to put in the effort to create a broadcast.  In addition, the league would not get its money, the players in turn would not get theirs. If they wanted it more money, the only revenue streams would be ticket prices. If the ticket prices were too high no one would attend games, then there'd be operating losses at the arena.  If there is no arena, there is no place to play.  This vacuum you seem to believe exists regarding economics does not exist.  Now, perhaps you'll fall back to the next argument.  It's the people at the top who make too much money that are the problem.  They should take less money. Yes, well, they COULD take less money, but they are not required to take less money. But enough, I could go on.

Software companies do fight piracy, just not through obnoxious DRM.  They've turned to other measures of control. In addition, they project piracy costs into their budgets, so rather than hiring more staff, they are pay existing staff less, hire less staff, force them to crunch, etc. In addition, the growing rise of in-game currency, season passes, etc. are all methods by which companies fight the piracy issue.

The music industry adapted to the streaming model in an attempt to fight piracy. Unfortunately the streaming model reduces income for artists overall. It certainly allows more artists to be discovered. Is it any surprise that concert ticket prices have steadily risen over the past 20 years as the mp3 piracy crazy and then streaming music services quickly came into existence?

When companies change how they do business to deal with piracy, it usually happens at the expense of the consumer.  It's not as simple as you want to make it out to be.
