It's the only sort of TV entertainment where the value of the product drops like a stone relative to the time since broadcast.

Game of Thrones? Awesome, can't wait, will download and watch it when I get some spare time.

Superbowl? I'm putting my life on hold so I can watch the broadcast in real time.

Live sports is the only sort of TV entertainment that is PIRACY-RESISTANT. That's where the money is, so that's where the content licensing battles will be fought.

Scientists discovered this at least 6 years ago when I watched a documentary about it, and most likely quite a bit before that.

Exactly what I thought. In fact wasn't one of the hypotheses of the last investigation that the Black Death of the 1400s wasn't even plague, but rather a haemorrhagic fever like Ebola?

Simplicity does not precede complexity, but follows it.
