Streaming services and film studios try to stop free access to shows and movies.

Netflix, Amazon, and the major film studios have sued the makers of "The Dragon Box," a device that connects to TVs and lets users watch video without a cable TV or streaming service subscription.

Joining Netflix and Amazon as plaintiffs in the suit are Columbia Pictures, Disney, Paramount Pictures, Twentieth Century Fox, Universal, and Warner Bros. The suit asks for financial damages and an injunction preventing Dragon Media from continuing the alleged copyright infringement.

It's the way they do it

It appears they facilitate people using services like Netflix, Hulu, etc (like Roku), EXCEPT without paying for them. Going to DragonBox's website, there BIG selling point is NO monthly entertainment bills. You buy this box and that is it.
