If they were forced to offer a la carte pricing, you would pay A LOT more for the popular channels. You'd probably pay $25/month for the ESPNs alone, probably $10-20/month for TNT/TBS, $20-30 for MSG/MSG+/MSG2, $15/month each (maybe more) for SNY and YES. Things like the History channel, Discovery, TLC, you'd pay $5-10/month and so on.

Yes, I have over 1000 channels, most I can't even name let alone watch. However, I am not really paying for those channels.
