    and the content creators wonder why people pirate tv shows.
    I agree with @@H3llion... to eliminate piracy, media content should be made available to all the paying public.

    pirates will steal goods regardless of price, quality. most consumers tend to buy things they like if made available at no hassle to them. (success of iTunes store and Steam games?)

The show lacked audience and was canceled/not renewed (numerous times). If this show was put up on the Internet, it would have gotten much wider exposure and greater audience.

    Seems that the TV Broadcasters are still in the Stone Age...
