I've enjoyed the HomeRun product since 2016 without paying any additional charges. When you add up the countless hours of commercials skipped, the convenience of on-demand show watching, and the reasonable UI interface, I'm starting to feel a little guilty for not contributing.
I also appreciate the non-cloud options, and the limited use of my usage data, but I appear to be unique in that respect, looking at all the products people accept that with.
Of course it really helped that your team provided me the technical information I needed to successfully push my cable provider back from putting DRM on everything, which allowed me to record most of my cable channels again (thankyou, thankyou, thankyou!), so my value might be higher than most. I got lucky by having a reasonable cable TV provider (shout out to Wave TV).
My philosophy in being a customer, though, is that, when a product provides value, I certainly want to pay enough to help keep my supplier in business, with resources to improve, a reasonable profit, and happy employees. I do this for open source companies, for example.
This is the first time I've ever asked a regular company about paying more, so kudos to SD for being so honorable in their Beta commitments, but I do want SD to survive, if not thrive, to keep the good stuff coming. What are my options here?
