    Not really, Modern cable works like a network, not unlike satellite.

    The network is divided into 'tiers' and they put certain channels on a tier.

    Say you order your favorite local broadcaster, you can get that and the other channels on that particular tier. "packages" is what cable company's call them. Same with satellite.

    It would not be cost effective for cable providers to set up all the channels they supply individually, and cable boxes would have to be engineered for that.

    That is called "a la carte", 

    and if it was avaiable it would cost far more per channel than the existing services do.
