Well yeah, but that totally misses my point. Sure they make a lot more money that way, but my point is it's because they're forcing anyone who wants cable/satellite in that market to pay for YES. They're making more money by refusing to give customers a choice - other than the choice of simply cutting the cord, that is.
Same holds true for the other RSNs. I was just using YES as an example.
No, I don't see a la carte happening anytime soon. The people/corporations making billions from these sports TV deals will never let that happen.
