While it's possible that some people will start paying to keep their content there, it's more probable that most people won't.

Sorry gang, you're getting a rant.
 
So, they're remaking Blackpool here in the States as Viva Laughlin! because damn, we Americans are derivative.  Game shows, night-time soaps; if it was big in Britain it's sure to work over here, but no we can't just import it, we've got to re-do it American-style.  Then Hollywood gets a hold of it and changes it quite a bit, and damned if half the stuff doesn't go pear-shaped in a hurry (although it still receives acclaim -- Joe Sixpack loves shite for some reason.)  Look what happened to Queer as Folk, fertheluvvamud.  And they've even started in on the telenovelas, except that unlike the originals, the U.S. versions are series; no definite story arc and ending.

We've imported someone to play Ripley, cast a dead-ringer for Natalie, and a soap-star hunk for Peter.  Hugh Jackman (also the producer) and Melanie Griffith have supporting roles.  (Word is that despite having a run on Broadway in Chicago, Melanie can't sing worth a damn.)
 
The critics are not being kind.  Perhaps we shan't have to view the train wreck for more than a week or two.
