That wouldn't really make any sense in this case. Since the channels all require you to have cable or satellite service, they're not useful to cord cutting customers, and in fact promote not cutting the cord.
No they don't. They offer more content to subscribers than non-subscribers, but I don't have cable/satellite and have been watching quite a bit of programming on the History channel and live on ESPN3 since they became available. They are very useful to me. And for those who want more, cancel DirecTV and subscribe to one of the services which works with its subscribers instead of against them. DirecTV had better get with the program; its subscription competitors are offering services to consumers which DirecTV stubbornly refuses. Think Oldsmobile: once the most popular brand in American and less than a quarter century later, available only used and in museums.
