Would You Pay Fox a Dollar a Month?

You may have noticed that Fox programming is still being shown on Time Warner Cable. According to Marketwatch, Reuters and WPIX a deal has been been reached, but no one is saying how much Time Warner has agreed to pay Fox for the "privilege" of broadcasting their shows.

We're told that Fox (owned by News Corp.) wants a dollar a viewer, per month. Naturally, whatever Time Warner pays Fox, it will eventually end up on your bill.

Would you pay a dollar a month extra to watch shows (House -- American Dad -- Family Guy -- Glee) that Fox supplies for free over the air and online? Would you pay a dollar on top of that $65 a month you're already paying Time Warner for channels you probably don't watch? Is it time for a la carte programming? (This allows you to pay for only the channels/shows you want to watch.)

Let us know what you think -- Take the poll on the sidebar to the right, under the long ad. We'll tally the results next week.

(Regardless, we're rewatching the first season of Joss Whedon's Dollhouse on DVD tonight. We are just waiting for more Alpha.)
