The first is that it's a lot of work for literally no real benefit whatsoever. Like you've just said, there's little point in getting rid of them. Nothing to gain by any of that.
The second is that you're completely missing the point as to why we linked to them.
The reason we linked to any Ninjago episode to be streamed on another site is that, at the time when we made those videos, there were no official links to stream that episode officially.
That was the entire and only reason we linked to non-official sites. LEGO did not provide a clear immediate alternative. If they had, you would bet that we would have linked to them over those other sites in a heartbeat when we made those coverages.
Television is dead. They're trying to fight it, but it's a losing battle. See, the thing with cable is that you have to be sitting down at a certain place at a certain time to see something. And if you've missed it, unless you have it set to record, it's really hard to find it again. You have to wait until the reair it - which Cartoon Network doesn't really make it easy to find and figure out.
We at TTV have always thought that LEGO should make their entertainment more readily and immediately available. Which is why, now, we're completely supporting them as they have done their absolute best to make sure that Journey to One is available, day one, online to stream. That's the future of entertainment.
I understand that it isn't available in all countries, but we need to show them that that works. Again, if LEGO had made Chima or Ninjago available on any streaming platform, we wouldn't have shared those alternative sites to begin with. But LEGO, so far, still remains partially in the past when it comes to entertainment. This is a step in the right direction.
The third reason is that Bionicle has been a low-investment line for them. There's no denying it. Ninjago, Chima and Nexo Knights got full order television shows, Bionicle got four episodes and a web series. If you enjoy the line, you have to realize that putting it elsewhere is dangerous, because LEGO can't trek those metrics. If the Bionicle show isn't successful, then that's it. Bionicle is done. This revival will last until 2017, and that will be all of the story content we get. So it's very important to us, specifically for Bionicle, to make sure that they see how many people actually watch that show.
Bonus fourth reason: still too much work for really nothing. Good luck actually getting someone to do it.
