I didn't change my meaning... I just didn't cover all the angles. In a "perfect world" FOX would rather FOX News be a la carte and have most of the viewers paying them a much higher fee for their product. Most channels would like this, but only the ones who really feel like they "could" do it are even tempted in the current market. BUT, FOX has crunched the numbers and they know they make far more money being in a lower tier on Dish which touches most of Dish subscribers than they would be a la carte only with their targeted viewers paying a higher per-viewer fee. So... stuck with the tiered model, FOX leverages their less-popular channels and content by the demand for their news channel. They say "you have to pay us more for these IF you want the big channel"... and that's what gets us to where we are now.
