Pirating the 2015 Oscars: HD Edition

This is pretty amusing. Pirating the 2015 Oscars: HD Edition "Pirates are now watching films at higher quality than the industry insiders voting on them."

"But here’s the thing: screeners are stuck in the last decade. While we’re all streaming HD movies from iTunes or Netflix, the movie studios almost universally send screeners by mail on DVDs, which is forever stuck in low-resolution standard-definition quality. A small handful are sent in higher-definition Blu-ray. This year, one Academy member received 68 screeners — 59 on DVD and only eight on Blu-ray. Only 13% of screeners were sent to voters in HD quality."
