    why not just allow streaming?

    Instead of creating a torrent and making people download it (with ads) why not just allow people from outside of the U.S. to watch the shows on the network's website? The networks don't have to split web-based advertising revenues with anyone on the creative side so they'd be getting a lot more views of the ads attached to the shows and cutting down on "piracy". Plus they'd be increasing the popularity of the shows they produce and likely of DVD/BD sales in the future.
