If they gave it away, I'm sure no one would steal it. But I don't remember that one of the pillars of capitalism is that you have to keep cranking the price down until people stop stealing it, otherwise you are evil.

A hundred bucks a month for TV is out of line. At some point the programmers have to admit that there is only SO much TV you can watch

I think every economics curriculum should include the subject of ownership. In some countries this might not be the case, but in the U.S., DirecTV has the right to market and price their product however they want. Nobody's holding a gun to our heads - we don't have to do business with them.
Last I heard, price gouging was not illegal. Besides, if they were making that much money off of it, that would certainly invite competition from others who want a slice of the pie.
