So the FCC was supposed to make cable companies offer Ã€ la carte channel selection. And it seems the cable companies are now in agreement. They also want Ã€ la carte. But of course, there is some misunderstanding as to what that means exactly. http://www.engadget.com/2011/09/29/some-cable-companies-are-pushing-for-unbundled-channels-but-n/
That, my friends, is what we call bullshit.
If cable offered TRUE Ã la carte channel selection, I might actually pay for it. That means I can choose my own channel lineup, one channel at a time. And it means I pay only for those channels at a reasonable price, and not for any other channels. If I only want three channels, then my cable bill should be like $1.50 a month and I should only get those three channels.
