There are some companies that understand this. Not all clips from movies / tv get immediately taken down from sites like youtube.
You can go right now and watch tons of clips from movies like The Dark Knight and TV like Game of Thrones right now on youtube. Obviously you won't find full episodes (nor should you), but all the relevant, most exciting scenes are there for anyone to see.
The people behind that content know that they've made a great product and know that letting it exist on youtube only results in even more people being exposed to it (and wanting to buy it / watch it on TV when future content comes out).
