....... then why wouldn't the WTBT$ easily make the entire program, complete with rockstar GB's, cheesy dramas, etc, available on YouTube or some other free or almost free web streaming service? Obviously it is a HUGE burden for a majority of the "friends" to attend a regional convention and many either cannot go or it takes all of our their funds (or borrowed funds) to be able to make it. How about all the "friends" that are morbidly obese, infirm, have extreme health conditions, have unbelieving mates, or have mental issues which prevent them from attending a convention? So why wouldn't the GB/FD&S/WTBT$ just have fewer RC's and let the poor JW's stay home and watch from home? Wouldn't that be the loving thing to do given the simplicity of the technology now and the massive hardship the conventions cause so many?
The ONLY reason I can think of why they do not already do this is because the WTBT$ would lose out of the donations made at the conventions. This also must have something to do with the new trend started this year to have larger stadium conventions and have less of them. So maybe they are headed in that direction? But those decisions won't be made out of love or relieving a burden. It will be made because the $$ numbers do not work out for the WTBT$ to keep putting on expensive conventions if they do not profit enough in donations to make it worth while.
