Sure, it's a lack of incentive really, but since Americans can do it directly from the rights owners (NBA for example) and make good money on it, I don't see why the FA/PL don't have an interest in cutting out the middle man. I mean American media is dominated by cable companies and they've managed to give quality access outside them.
