$3.33 is an absolute bargain. You may not see the value personally, but the value to the consumer, as a whole, far exceeds that amount. But like I said, it would have to be a dramatic change in price, or E* would take a huge hit for every taker.
The exact numbers escape me now, but for HBO it was something along the lines of $5 or $6 per sub, plus a stiff percentage of any amount over $10 charged (HBO wants a $10 sell price to the consumer). Showtime, Cinemax and Starz had smaller, but not tremendously smaller, terms.
$10 for all 4 would be a steal, far more significant than the $30 HD package most of which are channels for which there is no additional charge over their SD feed. That's why I'd wait to see something official before getting your hopes up too high.
