The big networks have been following the Spotify model since the beginning of broadcast television.
Sports fans will have a tough pill to swallow when they realize just how much it will cost them to purchase ESPN and Fox Sports a la carte. Non-sports fans bills will be lower, but there's no doubt they'll lose channels they enjoy that are subsidized by the packages cable companies put together. I think the biggest reason other than sports why people haven't cut the cord is because people like the variety. I just don't think people would like a la carte as much as they think they would.
