Myself, I'm waiting for an update to the visual cortex-stimulating Dream Machines of the 1960s.
Those weren't machines, those were drugs. And believe me, they have been regularly updated with new mind-bending versions.
Also, I realize that perceiving automated driving systems as loss of freedom is irrational to an extent; this is because my opinion is based on personal feelings which are more subjective than logical. I merely present my opinion as food for thought.
He can still do it on websites located in 193 other countries.

And the DRM makes them a more attractive choice than the Blu-Ray discs or HD cable
What makes them more attractive is that they don't cost $30 a pop. Having no DRM is a bonus, for sure, but really it comes down to HD movies being a horrible value. Most people outside the slashdot crew don't know what DRM is. Hell, most of them don't even know what a browser is. The bottom line is most people don't want to spend that kind of money on a Blu-ray when you can get two or three DVD's for the same price or just download them for free.
