Television is dying and so is DRM because the new technology
of internet makes them irrelevant.
The only thing that protects them (unfairly) is the internet
When internet upload speeds are upped to same as download speeds, everyone
will become their own TV or radio station and the ideas of
DRM will become an irritation as common as having to sign
in to a website to view its contents.
