Do broadcast networks need ANY subscriber revenue to create "big dollar content"? Other than the ridiculous retransmission fees, I thought advertising paid their bills.
As long as you're willing to pay per channel and accept the same amount of paid advertising.
How much do MSOs pay per subscriber for broadcast network retransmission fees? Whatever this amount is, add to it something for Apple/Netflix/Service X and you'll have what's fair.
In the end you'll be paying the same amount or more. You think those who work in the TV industry are going to voluntarily take a pay cut so you can watch TV on the cheap? LOL.
