that is just some ideas on the sports side.
it would kill 1 million worthless jobs it would simply mean that the good channels would stop subsidizing the crappy channels, and so, if the crappy channels didnt have good content, they would not be subscribed to, and thus, would either go away or adapt. I can't wait for this to happen, and this article is very one sided. It ignores the fact that most of the channels in the "bundle" i pay for I dont watch, and they get that pay regardless. Its a ripoff TV model, where one does not have to work, or produce good content to survive, and it simply raises customers bills.
Re: If the crap channels

Niche channels are already destroying themselves... ...voluntarily, with no help needed from a la carte. Consider:
Sci-Fi Channel -> SyFy, shows wrestling
Music Television -> MTV, shows "reality" trash
Discovery Channel -> too awful to discuss
BBC America -> Shows U.S.-made programs
The Nashville Network -> TNN, shows ST:TNG (just like BBCA)
Bravo -> Was arts, now "reality" trash
TNN changed to something else later, I forget what. Anyway, you get the point: All these channels, and many more, started out "niche", and moved towards the lowest common denominator. How much real niche programming is even left?
