I always ear internet is cheaper in the US than in Canada. Here in Montreal I can get TV with 30 a la carte channels + unlimited internet at 50 mbps + unlimited phone calls in Canada for $150 per month.

When I go fill the car tank on a windy day at -20, tapping the card on the pump and start filling up is very convenient. I used that thing all the time now.   I could see myself using Apple pay all the time too,  over 95% of terminals here in Montreal supports NFC.   Now imagine with the Apple watch, nothing to take out, just tap the watch and you're done. Now if Apple could only...
Then ESPN could be a special channel like HBO that cannot be pick-up with a la carte bundles...  the way it works here is we have a list of channels we can choose a la carte. The list does not include special channels like premium movies or sports. Example of mandatory package:  Local feeds of  PBS, CBS, ABC, FOX, NBC, CW, ...  ($10)Example of a la carte list:  CNN, FoxNews, Animal planet, Discovery, Disney, HGTV, Food, ...
