Commercialism Getting in Bed for the Love...Not the Buck.

So, in The Olympics, I lamented America’s paltry airing of the Paralympics even though they’re at the same venues the regular Olympics are held a month before, otherwise being relegated to being seen on the net on  I also said there were other ways…now, to see the coming Winter Paras.

My provider friend and I were talking awhile back about jailbroken things like phones, tablets, and such…specifically, the Amazon Fire Stick.  OK, before anybody gets up in arms saying Jason’s condoning breaking the law, I’m not, and breaking anything is not…it’s what you do with the broken device that defines the illegality.

My wheels started spinning, of course, so I threw out, since Amazon and every other company knows their devices are being broken, why not get in bed with the consumers that can’t get out to, say, go to the movies.  Yeah, yeah, copyright this and copy right that, but if the brands, the MPAA, and the RIAA are in on it to where brands and artists could still get their cut, then, sell it to the old folks homes and the crip homes at bulk prices.  Make the administrators be the only ones to be able to purchase them by showing their company badges/credentials.  If the person lives in their own house, but can’t otherwise get out in the world, have the caregiver show their credentials.  It’s a win, win, win, win situation.  The brand would sell so many, they’d be banking for good, and the artists wouldn’t feel like they’re getting ripped off…and, their flick or whatever’s getting exposure.

The Paras aside, which Kodi allows for seeing channels not broadcast in a certain country, why should home-bound crips be penalized for the hand they were dealt and not be allowed the enjoy the things in life we trivialize?

Until next time, be good to each other.
