So if only 25% of cable subscribers take a particular channel, does  
that mean they have to pay four times as much as the current rate  
charged?  I would expect a large number of cable "networks" would go  
under with the a-la-carte model.

I actually enjoy having a large number of channels available, as  
sometimes good programs show up on channels I don't usually watch.  On  
the other hand, I would drop "networks" such as the Golf Channel and  
MTV and whatever one carries racing, in an instant.  Plus every home  
shopping channel.  I would not be allowed to cancel the Disney Channel  
or Nickelodeon.
