Eventually all the CBS content you can watch on other platforms (like Star Trek reruns) will only be available on this CBS service. And Fox will have one, and ABC will have one, and so on, and we're going to have to subscribe to all these mini-Netflixes to get access. It's why Netflix is investing so heavily in original programming, because they know someday their original programming is all they'll have.
Public TV stations operate on licenses. If they went to an all pay format, I'd suspect there would be pushback. But, the big boy networks all own major cable stations also. They could just put their worse shit on free TV and sell their best stuff
