ESPN could cost $20 a Month, A La Carte

ESPN could cost subscribers $20 monthly if cable operators break up programming bundles and offer smaller packages of networks, Liberty Media Chairman John Malone John Malone speculates.

That estimate illustrates the reasons why a la carte access to video networks would not necessarily be more affordable for video subscribers, compared to what they already pay, in every instance. If a typical viewer watches a dozen channels, each costing about $5 a la carte, monthly bills would still amount to $60, if no expensive sports programming were offered. 

Add in ESPN and monthly bills climb to about $80. That would not necessarily represent a smaller sum than many subscribers now pay.
