I agree with your general point Beamer, but you contradict yourself twice at the end. They are here to sell us Game of Thrones, via DVD/Blu-Ray. Also, HBO are sure to care because people pirating their content will also cost them subscriptions, albeit on a lesser scale.

It will be interesting when they're forced to change, and I agree they will - I don't think it will be that long. It's mind boggling how content providers are so bad this sort of thing, it seems every anti-piracy measure they attempt encourages piracy by making the paid product ever more unappealing. I appreciate doing deals for legal distribution in 200 countries isn't easy, but things like unskippable anti-piracy warnings - you know who isn't bothered by these? Pirates.
