You can say it all you want, but it ain't necessarily so...

FOTA will be the first to go - it is a simple question of profitability And the ability to push consumers into a more profitable distribution scheme.

Multi-channel packages will be the next to go.

You posted a story about the Pace D/A convertors. The best argument that the cable systems have AGAINST ala carte is that the analog infrastructure is DUMB. When they move to digital, it is trivial to enable/disable individual channels. At some point either government intervention, or consumer demand is going to make ala carte happen.
