@AndrewGirdwood Yeah, the "ifs" are all still on Wizards, though. They don't even have digital copies of the books yet and just keep saying that something is coming eventually. I'm running an online D&D5E game now using Roll20 and it works, but I still have to reference the print books for everything and key in all of the relevant info by hand into Roll20. With my last Pathfinder campaign, we could build characters in Hero Lab and it would have all of the important book content right in the application and then I could export those characters out of Hero Lab and right into d20Pro for the online gaming.
And that's part of Trapdoor's problem; I wasn't convinced their product would be substantially better than what is out there.

Part of the problem is that they were once the only option in a desperately needed field (digital support for D&D5E) and then become one of many options in a crowded field (digital support for Pathfinder). For Pathfinder, there's already Hero Lab, d20Pro, and others which overlap with Trapdoor's new position.
D&D5E still desperately needs digital support, but there's no clear idea where that will come from right now.
"Which makes the free release of episodes of “Newsroom,” “Veep,” and “Girls” on YouTube even more perplexing."
The only full episode I see up on HBO's YouTube channel is the first episode of "The Newsroom". All the videos from "Girls" and "Veep" are clips; which certainly doesn't hurt their business model. It's just advertising.
