    If I had to take an educated guess, it’s all about money! Maybe google or general chat may help you better.

    I've noticed more and more CBS shows coming out have required you to use their pay service ("CBS All Access"). I'm sure they are continuing their squeeze to try to get more money for their content and have their own independent pay channel they control... Personally I hope this drags out, that CBS loses a lot of viewers, and that CBS is forced to admit defeat. I don't want to see precedent get set where each of these major channels/content providers starts over-estimating their own worth & bargaining power, and those of us with DTV or Cable TV packages are forced to pay even more as their higher fees get passed along to us. At some point the channels may flat out leave the packages entirely.

    Disney's move towards putting all their content into a paid channel really worries me given how much content they have and continue to generate. At some point we could be in a bad multi-year transition period where we have to pay ala-carte for several different content providers that we actually care about, forcing us to have multiple accounts, no common interface for browsing & watching all our content, etc..
