I want to see this (and not see Fox News) in my lifetime

The chairman of the FCC called for cable companies to start providing a la carte, channel-specific pricing structures, rather than large blocks of channels -
But cable still seems to operate by the old rules, which leaves a lot of customers frustrated. Cycling freaks are angry when their system doesn't carry OLN, the only U.S. network to air the Tour de France. Anglophiles have their knickers in a twist if they can't get BBC America. For the childless, channels like Noggin are no-go zones. Left-wingers have to surf past Fox News Channel, and right-wingers avoid PBS. And yet cable viewers effectively have to pay for—and subsidize—all those channels.

Hey Charter Communications - here's my order:
ABC
NBC
CBS
FOX
UPN (for Veronica Mars, and Veronica Mars only)
PBS
OLN
F/X
The History Channel
VH1
CNN
Bravo
HBO

UTA: Ack! And:
Comedy Central

Everybody Hates Chris is on UPN, and it's a fine show.

Also, no Comedy Central?

Life without The Daily Show? You're prepared for that?

And what in the world do you watch on OLN? Biking shows?

For the most part, though, I agree with your list. I might just add one or more of the T's (TNT, TBS...).

Personally, I'd only need:
ABC
NBC
CBS
FOX
The History Channel
Cartoon Network (I'd miss Adult Swim)
Comedy Central

They are the only ones I ever watch. However, the girlfriend would need:
TLC
HGTV
WB
Disney
Nickelodeon
