As I understand it cable networks are paid by cable companies a share of the subscription fee. I just read on another forum that AMC gets $.75 per month per subscriber. What is stopping the cable network from providing the channel via internet through an Apple device and charging you directly and cutting out the cable company? How much would you pay for a monthly channel? I bet it's more than .75. I could live with 10-20 channels. Even if they $2 per channel, thats only $20-$40. Cable companies have resisted a la carte offerings for years. There is certainly a market for this. I would imagine this could be VERY popular.
