That al a carte argument doesn't add up. You won't pay $0.40 for a channel. Here's a reason I gave before:
You are missing my point and I am not advocating ala carte. You said that ESPN and Disney deserved all that money because they were "2 of the top 3" networks in 2010.
And that makes them worth over 10 times as much as the number 1 network in 2010 how?
