For example, does TWC pay $1 per subscriber and they want $1.53? Do they pay $10 per subscriber and now want $15.30 each? My guess is it is a lot closer to the former as they know they would look like idiots over 53 cents per person. So, they put a percentage hoping that a naive public will see them in a better light. Of course when I threw all this at the moron rep, he couldn't answer.
I read somewhere that MTV charges around 40 - 50 cents per subscriber.
I'm going to guess that MSG is less then that
