A la carte is the way to go, in my opinion. Sure, some channels may go out of business because they won't be able to make enough money. And, the monthly fees for some subscribers would substantially increase, such as those who subscribe to the sports channels. However, for a great many subscribers the monthly fees would substantially decrease, and people would only pay for the channels that they want. Market forces would dictate what channels remained, who paid higher fees, and who paid lower fees. And, at the end of the day, that is how it should be with a free market.
