There's also shit about DVDs

Like apparently their cut on DVDs is the same as from VHS tapes, which was negotiated back when tapes were really expensive to produce, so they accepted smaller royalties so the customers wouldn't get overcharged. But now not only are VHS tapes cheap but DVDs cost almost nothing to make, and are nearly pure profit for the studios, and the writers (rightly) want a bigger piece of that moneypie.

But yeah I don't know how they expect to get anything from the internet when I'm just gonna download the torrent from http://www.eztv.nl/ for every show I still watch except House, M.D.
Where did that come from?

DVDs keep getting taken on and off the table. It's the internet royalties that are at the forefront.

I will probably watch hulu.com when that's up and running because torrents take too long to download. Hulu.com will RULE ALL. With that in mind, now let's all enjoy the latest TREEHOUSE OF HORROR...

That better have worked or my argument is poor.

Ha ha, Chris said "effect" instead of "affect" and then the other guy said he was smart. Subtle.

To be fair to Mr. Network Executive, he probably couldn't hear the difference.
