Personally, I don't believe the fragmentation of the "pie" will work out as the Bonanza the companies like Disney expect .. I also believe the loss of "Daredevil" is as much NF decision as it was Disney's ..
As an interesting side note, I have wished for a la carte CATV for years .. well, this week, when my annual CATV / Phone / ISP bill took it's regular price hike, I had to do the "Call Spectrum Song and Dance" .. and this time, I was not bluffing them when I threatened to cancel it all but the ISP unless the bill could be reduced and given a longer term price fix .. I was prepared to, reluctantly, work the Streaming Providers for content and port my Home Phone to Google Voice ..
After a lengthy "discussion", low and behold, Spectrum offered me a new package, just implemented in select markets over the last few months, which allowed me to get the Basic CATV, as well as my own selection of 10 regular channels of my CHOICE with DVR .. 200Mbps ISP and Home Phone, as well as HBO, Showtime, Cinemax, Starz, etc .. for $140 clams a month .. and, a 24 month price guarantee .. a downloadable app that will work on a ROKU / Fire Stick, etc that allows me to transport my package to any TV that is within Wi Fi range without the need of a CATV box .. and, on the 10 channel personal choice, I can change my lineup if I want to ..
I don't think they even have this on the Website .. I went from $225 a month to $140 ..
