FCC Supports A La Carte Cable Pricing

Posted By Jim On 11/29/2005 @ 9:37 am In The Home | 5 Comments

Federal Communications Commission [3] Chairman Kevin Martin is expected to announce today that the FCC is revising its report last year and will be in support of an “a la carte” pricing scheme in the cable industry, where consumers will be able to pick and choose which channels they want instead of being forced into buying bundles. They originally claimed bills would go up (by 14-30%) but it looks like they’ll be revising it. Expect “viewership” in popular channels like Oxygen and the Lifetime Network to plummet. (I’m only kidding!)

If this leads to lower cable prices I’ll be happy. I only ever watch ESPN, The History Channel, some cooking shows sometimes, and the local channels.
