Unfortunately Netflix and such aren't available in my country. I do have a Spotify premium account and I like it a lot.
It all comes down to being able to watch/listen where, when and how I want without limitations.
Spotify allows me to download my playlists to my phone or my laptop and listen to it everywhere.
I had cases where I had legitimately bought the Blu-Ray, but the system crapped out when I tried to run it and it needed a software update. After messing with it for over an hour, I just downloaded a ripped version and watched that, it was easier than trying to get the Blu-Ray disk to work. (Avatar if you're interested, there were a lot of people with problems with that one).
I also might want to watch some episodes of a TV series I have on my phone or tablet. But this is a pain as well.
I hardly download anything. Nowadays if I can't easily watch/listen to it legally in the way I want, I just don't buy it. (I haven't bought a Blu-Ray disk since the pain I had with the Avatar disk, even though I did get it to run after messing with the software update some more on a later date).
If it's harder to use the legal medium than it is to use the illegal medium, then they need t fix things.
