Sure why not?
The Maine law is one of those things that SEEMS like a great idea for consumers. But it's only valuable to consumers who do not value their time. Who want to spend time researching which channel their favorite program is on, and do that for EVERY program and sporting event they like. Rather than just watch TV. 

Also: First Amendment? Huh? But corporations are people now and nothing makes sense anymore so sure why not.

FCC statement regarding a la carte
As Ars Technica points out -- though Comcast and the programmers cite that federal law preempts Maine's new law, Evangelos previously pointed to an FCC Communications Commission statement that "There is no law that requires (or prohibits) cable companies to offer channels or programs on an à la carte basis."
