Ok... hold on for a second here...
SO let me get this straight:
1) You wanted to watch TWO brand new movies from two of the best production companies out there, the very first time they were ever shown to the public on the entire planet.
2) You feel you shouldn't pay $10 for that. (which is less than two meals at McDonalds)
3) When given free content, you don't want to watch ads.
Granted, DPTC is a bit over the top... but really how do you expect companies to keep producing quality content?
Its a great thing to really think about. Sure free and devoid of ads is awesome, but there is going to be a major turning point coming to the internet soon. If we keep getting everything for free with no ads, soon the companies that had the cash to produce what we wanted are going to start falling apart.
In the case of some giant record label or a hollywood studio, maybe they deserved it.
But the NS staff, Poorboyz crew, and the Nimbus dudes... well I know none of them are high ballin' livin in mansions. Just a big group of people doing what they can to move this sport forwards, and make a living at it. I mean at a certain point in life, you need money to survive... and you need enough to pay for your house, wife, kids, car, etc... let alone things like heli time needed to get the footage you're watching.
So I ask you, if you can't pay for something, and you don't want to watch ads... whats the solution? Should the entire ski media world turn into kids with cameras their parents bought? You'd also have to just send tapes to each other, because there wouldn't be websites to share the video on...
DPTC is too much, yes. We need to scale back and have better integrated advertising sure... but is it not a pretty good deal to be able to watch a movie online for $10? Is it not ok to pay even a few bucks for awesome content produced by these movie makers?
Ten years and we aint' goin' nowhere.
