Cable is getting outrageous price wise. DirecTV runs $100 a month with 2 receivers, HD DVR, etc. I would be interested in a company that would allow you to pay per channel, and you only get those channels. Like Fox Sports Arizona, TNT, TBS, ESPN, ABC, NBC, CBS would be sufficient for me. That is where all the sports are played, and I wouldn't miss any games that are on national television. That's my only concern with getting rid of cable.
I think the first company that did an a-la-cart cable service would be inundated with subscribers. Not sure if they could make money doing it, or else I'm sure someone would be doing it. I don't want 20 shopping channels or any of the "estrogen" channels. To they are just clutter.
