Restream.io vs Restream Wirecast

I am thrilled that Wirecast has now introduced the restream feature. At first I thought that they were using restream.io , a company that has been active for quite some time. However, this is not the case, it is just the same (confusing) choice of name.

I went to the effort to compare features. If I understand correctly, Wirecast is offering a standard package for $25 / month which limits you to 720p, 30fps and 500 minutes. Streaming is possible to multiple platforms, Restream.io on the other hand offers free unlimited restreaming at higher resolution, mirroring your stream bandwidth unless you use Facebook (at the cost of $19 per month and 720p, 30 fps) -  All other channels at higher resolution. Unlimited minutes.

This begs the question: Why should a Wirecast customer use Wirecast restream instead of restream.io if Wirecast is limited in minutes and more expensive? Is it just convenience, surely I am missing something? Can someone please clarify?

Thank you
