    This snippet I thought was worth repeating here, as it is the main reason that pay TV prices are rising:

    Quote:
    If you thought sports licensing costs couldn’t get any crazier, guess again; ESPN announced a deal last week with Major League Baseball for $5.6 billion. The $700 million ESPN will pay per year is double its current deal, a rate of increase even higher than ESPN’s NFL renewal which was 73% higher per year. As VideoNuze readers know, I’ve repeatedly highlighted the rapidly rising cost of sports rights as a key vulnerability for the pay-TV industry as it causes non-sports fans to subsidize these expensive deals.
