I can't see this continuing. Eventually, there'll be 30 different services, each wanting $9.95 a month. I just don't see that as sustainable.

The other problem with this is it prevents these shows from becoming cultural touchstones, like the original Star Trek, or Doctor Who.

I'd like to think this was true....but then again, there was a day when we never thought we'd be paying for television at all. That's what commercials were for.
