This is something that companies don’t consider when they offer such subscription services. A great example is the bad decision by CBS to start offering subscriptions to some of its Star Trek series. It’s the to point now where I will never pay CBS for monthly subscriptions for anything as they are milking a gravy train to the point where they will kill the cash cow of Star Trek. Between the various cable, satellite, and numerous online sites like Netflix, YouTube (paid version),Amazon, Hulu, etc., it’s to the point where if you subscribed to every subscription, you would easily surpass a good mortgage or rent payment.
