Well, here is another argument I would like to add.
The way cable works I believe is that the provider pays for networks to be included in their lineup. It may work the other way around for some networks. Either case a deal was made between the two and the cable company offers that to you as their offer.
Now it seems like they are basically going to be able to pick anything they want on the web and offer to you as if it is from them. We've seen the advert posted with the facebook, twitter logo and such with verizon. I guess their may still have to be agreements made between the parties for those listed I don't have the details.
But the main point I'm now going to get to is, the fact anytime with cable there is a dispute on money(like for example with the web instead could be ISP says you need to pay us money youtube to be in our fast lane, youtube then says no you need to pay me money to advertise and include me in your package instead, as this ISP over here is doing, etc etc.) what happens, a channel blackout.
