This is an excellent point. If someone came out as the first "you pick the channels you want!" provider they would kill it, and it would probably not take a lot more effort than it already does. My cable box already knows the channels I do and don't get, they would simply have to be individually programmed by the installer using some sort of remote device that connects through usb.
