I think the normal price for all of them is around $6-$7. A channel like Discovery probably is under $1, maybe 70-80 cents.

It's usually the other way around - all those OWN fans are subsidizing your viewing of ESPN. What do providers pay for ESPN now, like $11 a month? I know it's not that high, but I'm sure ESPN is working toward some ludicrous number like that.

They are subsidizing me and vise versa, that's why I said I wish we all had a choice. ESPN may be expensive but when you add up all the pop culture, womens, kids, and reality channels I never watch it probably costs more than ESPN. Point is we all need more choices, none of us should have to pay for channels we don't want.

If those that don't want ESPN start NOT subsidizing the cost of it (i.e., they subscribe to a package that doesn't include it), the cost per subscriber would likely rise for those that DO want it. Greatly.

And it would go other ways. Savings by not getting Lifetime would be eaten up by paying more for Discovery. Lifetime subscribers would lose savings from not getting Discovery. Networks would try to get more per subscriber.
