Over here a provider tried to block certain traffic streams like ping. Public outrage ensued and the block was quickly lifted.
Next thing you noticed is that the prices for mobile data were increasing. These days 1 gig for 10 euros is considered a pretty good deal. Also people are finding that on existing contracts unlimited traffic is not unlimited anymore. Speeds are squeezed way down after the limit of 1Gb is reached in a month.
All this contrasts quite nicely with an application landscape that pushes always online at every opportunity.
Perhaps this will root out this practice. I remember the trailer for "best defense" and then actually seeing it... another fine example of a trailer consisting of the only good bits of the entire film.
I say go ahead with tihs, just because it's normal practice in the industry doesn't mean it's not misleading.
There's way too many films these days where I'd expect to get paid $30 to sit 'm out. I can't recall 3 films made in the last 5 years where I'd even gone to the theatre for. Not that going to a movie theatre is that much fun. Sound tracks are all about how many subsonic rumbles you can get away with as a director. Volume is just short of real pain level. Seats are uncomfortable, the floor sticks and "one does not meet a better class of people"
