If it was free you would sign up, if it cost $3 per month you would not.
Even if the Man Hate Lifetime channel was free I would not sign up. Too much bullshit in my guide already. They can also keep OWN, SoapNet, Oxygen, BET, and WE. A $3 bill credit for each sounds about right, lmao...

^^^ That is counterintuitive if you ask me. Being ala carte would not be a good way for most channels to show more subscribers in order to drive up ad revenue. Let's use Lifetime as an example. How many of us single guys currently have Lifetime on our programming? I know I do and I never watch a single thing on it. If I were going ala carte it would not be on my plan so therefore they will lose me and anyone like me. They show more subscribers in number counts by being included in a package.

Which is exactly why Lifetime would be free.  If it was free you would sign up, if it cost $3 per month you would not.

Well in Lifetime's case maybe show some shit that a more mainstream audience would actually watch. If you ask me, there are too many niche type channels that most normal people don't watch. They are subsidized by forcing the non watching people to subscribe and pay for them on their packages. An la carte type system would fix that by forcing the channels to compete on price and content. If you have crap that no one watches your price is going have to reflect that. Likewise, if your prices are too high in relation to the competition you will have to lower prices or lose subs. Either way, some channels would cease to exist after a while.

I seriously don't understand why any cable channel other than the commercial free ones (e.g. HBO) should cost a single penny.  CBS and Fox are able to broadcast Sunday afternoon football profitablely by selling commercials there is no reason ESPN can't be profitable doing MNF with commercials being the sole source of revenue. 

If all channels were al a carte very good chance many would be free or very low cost because the more subscribers the more ad revenue and that is where the real money is.

Lightning strikes and 9/11 illnesses. Methinks the topic of the NFL's TV ratings has gone far afield...

Thanks for sharing that article, B...

I just had the worst service call from our carrier, Spectrum, that I think I have ever seen. We had one bedroom that did not have a cable jack in it and just moved someone into the room. Based on the roof, it is easiest to drop the cables on the exterior wall and then through the block and into the room rather than just doing a wall fish. The guy had a perplexed look on his face from the start and as he starts taking his equipment out he walks up and tells me he lost his drill somewhere and doesn't know where. I knew right then and there I was not getting cable installed into that room today. I'm almost halfway convinced that he just didn't want to do the job. Hopefully whoever they reschedule with tomorrow is a little better (which won't be hard) than this guy.
