You can either pay directly or indirectly wasting your time watching/listening to advertising.


I'd much prefer a low cost distribution channel and pay directly. I don't know how you value your time but renting a video, for $1.25 US is a bargain compared to spending half an hour or more watching commercials to get the movie "free" not to mention destruction of any sort of dramatic flow when interrupted by commercial messages every few minutes.
