Can anybody help me understand why streaming audio services are worth ¤9.99 - ¤14.99/month, but streaming video services are only worth ¤4.99 - ¤7.99/month?

I think that streaming video services are technologically more difficult and expensive to deliver, so why is audio-only valued higher?

@rusty I would imagine because there is a higher valuation intellectually for audio content, meaning, one must think to benefit by virtue of listenting, and of course topically, the material usually tends to be more cerebral.

Watching a movie though? you can just sit there like a blob in that worn out part of the couch where the depression of the foam is most comfortable, watching old reruns of Babe Watch while listening to Mudvayne... I think the Borg call that assimilation?
