That was not what I had in mind. That would just perpetuate the severely flawed 'bundling' system that we have at the moment.
What one should
be able to do is purchase individual sports or even leagues/series/matches rather than being forced to either pay for all sports or get nothing (beyond the limited FTA).
Unfortunately, the way things are set up at the moment, Sky have a virtual monopoly on a great deal of the most popular sport.
The demolition of their monopoly on films is already under way (DVD rental has been an alternative for years and the Lovefilm/Netflix services will continue to very rapidly erode the value of the film element of the Sky offerings as time goes by.)
