That's a very, very, very good point. If this gets settled, say, within the next week or so, no harm done, and we go back to the way everything was. If it doesn't, then don't be surprised to see not only satellite providers, but also the cable folks reassessing what programming they're willing to carry. Let's say DirecTV decides it will lose less by dropping Viacom and taking the hit of those who leave because of that decision, rather than by paying what Viacom wants and keeping those subs. Every company is here to make money...and making more money is better than making less money. It's entirely possible that Direct could become even more sports oriented as it seeks to maximize profit, maybe with some premium channels and a few news channels on the side. Dish then assumes the position of the movies and foreign/niche programming leader by dropping ESPN and the remaining (expensive) sports programming not carried on the national nets. I'm not saying I want this to happen, I'm just saying each company could be rethinking its position as it seeks to maximize profit. I don't see this scenario as good for satellite or the consumer, but it could happen.
