  1. Fix your business model, and bring your prices more into scope with reality, you may be able to change peoples minds. The networks are seen as another group of rich greedy executives to the average viewer, it’s tough to feel remorse if you take from those who’ve driven our country to the brink. More options like Hulu are a big help, look to minimize individual profit and maximize veiwership and you’ll see a change in viewer’s respect of your business model.
