Good to know the show is growing. Some reports claimed that brazillian market revenues are already superior to those of the United Kingdom.

Regardless of that being 100% accurate or not, it goes without saying that this is a market worth investing in, sadly, piracy and abusive prices keep it from truly shining, if it is already this good the way it is I can only imagine what it would be like if taxes and other problems stopped holding it back.
