It sounds like you have stumbled on to a wonderful business opportunity. I hope it makes you fabulously wealthy and nobody steals it from you.It is not about price.. it is about access. If I lived in the US, I would have zero reason what so ever to pirate TV-series or even music or movies (DVDs). Oh I missed the last Big Bang Theory.. no problem, I can see it for free or very cheap online!
But because I choose to live outside the US, then I am not allowed to have Netflix type service, Hulu or similar, and my Tv stations takes weeks or months or even years to show my favorite TV show.
Now Netflix has come to certain European countries, but even then the content is years out of date and you only have access to stuff that has already been shown on local tv at some point in time. But most of Europe does not even have Netflix or similar services, and those that there are.. their content is years if not decades old. Why? There are plenty of companies who have tried... because the rights holders refuse to allow it. Spotify for example had a tough time getting into the US or even some European countries... why? Because the same rights holders that allowed it in some countries, refused it in others... wtf?
So frankly, the rights holders are bringing piracy on themselves by limiting access not only on price (not a major factor) but on nationality or region.. and that is living in the 1980s and not in the Internet world of the 21st century.
The rights holders could squash a lot of piracy by letting content online after it is aired in the US... at a price. I would be willing to pay 10 bucks a month to get access to my favorite CBS shows. But I cant. So I pirate them because I dont want to wait the weeks/months/years for it to come on local tv channels...
And then there is DVDs...the most idiotic thing ever. Not only cant you get new movies online, you have to buy a DVD, but the morons at the movie companies actually believe there are borders on the Internet, so they release DVDs in say Russia long before everywhere else... even before they are in the cinema in many countries, and then they are shocked that the movie is being pirated online? Morons.
