These Are the TV Channels People Would Actually Pay For

[A] new survey from Digitalsmiths found that only 35.7 percent of consumers would add ESPN to their personal a la carte lineup of TV channels if they had the choice. That’s far less popular than ABC Television Network, which would be picked by 66.7 percent of consumers, but also puts the network behind Discovery Channel (62 percent), HISTORY Channel (57.7 percent), Comedy Central (43 percent) and even The Weather Channel (39.9 percent). Altogether, ESPN ranks 20th on the list of channels consumers chose as candidates for their a la carte lineup. – Janko Roettgers, Variety
