FCC Study Supports a la carte Programming Choice

Consumers would save money by moving the cable/satellite distribution system to an a la carte system.  Cables bills could be slashed as much as 13% if adopted.  Sen. John McCain (R-AZ) said he would introduce legislation that would create and promote the a la carte system.  Sen. Ted Stevens (R-AK) said if a la carte programming won't cost more, he would support that approach pending discussions with providers over the down side.  They have plenty to say about that. 

Let the lobbying begin.

The Chicago Tribune has the story, and the FCC report is here.
