Re: Why can't Apple go solo w/ TV Tuner Card?
Consumers are willing to pay for content whether it is traditional cable bill, a la carte cable, or streaming a la carte. The current model is antiquated and forces consumers into tiers that don't accurately reflect the demands of the market.
I think ESPN on a la carte priced at $5-$9 a month is reasonable since it is an expensive channel (the most after premium channels?), but I think expecting consumers to pay the same price for Comedy Central or FX or CNN is ridiculous because it isn't a good value and doesn't reflect the actual cost to provide the channel.
