I was surprised to see that M2 has made it into regular cable. I predict that in the future, MTV will create more specific stations catering to punk, heavy metal. Both shows will start outside of public access cable, and once the shows get enough hits, will move into public cable. I can already see the downslide of M2. There are already less videos - which is why people went there in the first place. So - MTV will be all the pop culture shows (it is already), M2 will turn into all the hip hop/rap/whatever culture shows catering to that audience, and then there will be the two other random shows that one has to subscribe for - like heavy metal/punk.
