Netflix, HBO, Comcast make a huge streaming mistake

Before broadcasting, most American households — about 105 million of the total 122 million — paid for cable. That’s because while on cable it was the only game in town. It also, for a long time, offered excellent value for money.

Yeah, they all got a lot of channels that they paid for but never watched. But you pay for the channels I like and I do the same for you meant we both got what we wanted. The system worked specifically because everything was included and only a la carte premium experiences were offered (and even then, you needed a base package before you could purchase any premium channels).
