That sounds like Apple, not Comcast. I'd think Comcast would just do it, since they'd have the locals anyway, and they have doing skinny bundles in their own MSO footprint. I'm a little biased by my market, as I can literally walk to the Comcast/Cox dividing line, but even in markets where they don't have an MSO presence, I would think this would make sense. I would think that Verizon would just not offer such a thing, as YTTV is OTT. If Comcast's system legally was regulated as OTT on Cox, they'd probably do the same, although the MSOs may have franchise agreements requiring a local tier, versus FiOS that has different franchise agreements. True, it would be a bit of a mess. Just saying that they could start doing it if they wanted to.
