A la carte cable tv?

I noticed tonight that my Dish TV
basic-subscription service no longer offers MSNBC
and suddenly does offer FOX News
Strange indeed, but the bigger issue methinks is a potential plus in that a la carte programming may be on its way soon
, you say, right? Perhaps not -- because if you only pay for what you get, that means that the little guys (like Link TV
, the RFD network
and Free Speech TV
) likely face a big honkin' challenge in being visible and thus viable.
So. Given that...do we really want pay-per-channel programming? Or is this just a moot point considering that "convergence" is creeping
ever so closer
