/g/ I had a million dollar idea for a while now that I want to share with you because it makes too much sense in order to not have been implemented already.
>Mobile App / Web App
>Monthly access to individual cable channels, pay per channel
For example, cable companies today bundle 100s of channels into a plan that's usually around $50 a month, 75% of which none of us ever watch. Why is there not a platform where one could pay $2 a month to subscribe to the discovery channel's TV programming, and maybe a slightly higher rate for commercial free shows on that channel.
Wouldn't we all rather pay $20 a month or so for 10 channels which we could stream over HDMI / webapp on our televisions & computers? It makes sense for the channels to sell directly to their customers as well. Also channels could be bundled on the app like cable companies do for a smaller price since no extra hardware or technicians are needed. Why are the cable guys not out of business, surely I can't be the only one who's thought of this.
