Illegal Television Downloading/Streaming

Just a quick one today, following an article I read today that didn't have an option to comment on it. Basically, illegal film downloading is up by 33% (which is appalling) but illegal television downloading is up significantly as well. Dr. Price, who led the research, says:

"But we often have to wait one month or two months for those shows to be shown legitimately in the UK,"

which is bollocks. I waited a YEAR for True Blood, and several months for the Big Bang Theory. I honestly don't think people would mind so much if it was just a month or so, but it's not. It's ridiculous. And I don't see why we should have to wait so long to watch on TV content that we can get online. It's all free, isn't it? Not like watching films.

Oh, the article is here, if anyone's interested:
