Potential Antitrust Issues with TV Everywhere

January 4, 2010

A collection of public interest groups have complained to federal regulators that the cable industry’s “TV Everywhere” plans violate antitrust law. See article in the Washington Post here. In essence, the TV Everywhere approach forces an Internet TV bundle. The programming is only available to subscribers of traditional cable. Ultimately, a settlement allowing consumers to purchase an Internet only programming bundle (i.e., drop the cable requirement) would be very interesting. I think that it’s fair to say that the cable providers will fight the unbundled approach given the need to protect the legacy business.

I want my Internet TV.

    I work for DISH Network and you are not required to bundle your services in order to take advantage of DISH’s TV Everywhere. In fact, I get my internet through a different company but still have the ability to watch TV, manage my recordings, and setup timers on my smart-phone or any other compatible device.

  5. Hi! I understand this is sort of off-topic however I needed to ask.
    Does managing a well-established blog like yours take a large amount
    of work? I am brand new to blogging but I do write in my diary everyday.

    I’d like to start a blog so I can easily share my own experience and thoughts online.

    Please let me know if you have any suggestions or tips for brand new aspiring bloggers.
    Appreciate it!


  6. I was wondering if you ever considered changing the layout of your website?

    Its very well written; I love what youve got to say.
    But maybe you could a little more in the way of content so people could connect
    with it better. Youve got an awful lot of text for only having 1 or two pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?


  7. Hi there! Do you know if they make any plugins to protect against hackers?
    I’m kinda paranoid about losing everything I’ve worked
    hard on. Any recommendations?

  9. I’m no longer positive where you are getting your information, but
    great topic. I must spend a while finding out much more or figuring out more.
    Thanks for great info I used to be in search of
    this info for my mission.


  10. Hi there! I could have sworn I’ve visited this site before but after looking

    Regardless, I’m certainly pleased I came across it and I’ll be bookmarking it and checking back regularly!


  11. Through the use of moisture and plant material, the vapor is made while safeguarding there is no overheating as the right temperature is used.
    The herbs or tobacco you plan to use must first be grinded into small bits
    and hydrated sufficiently for the machine to work.
    Babies feel a lot of relaxation and the soothing effect of the medicated vapors
    heal the congestion.


  12. I don’t know if it’s just me or if perhaps everybody else experiencing problems with your website.
    It appears as though some of the written text in your
    posts are running off the screen. Can somebody else please comment and let
    me know if this is happening to them as well? This could be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen before.
    Cheers


  13. I’m gone to say to my little brother, that he should also pay
    a visit this website on regular basis to obtain updated from newest news.

    Definitely believe that which you said. Your
    favorite justification appeared to be on the net the easiest thing to be
    aware of. I say to you, I definitely get annoyed while people think about worries that
    they plainly do not know about. You managed to hit the nail upon the top and defined
    out the whole thing without having side effect , people could take a signal.
    Will probably be back to get more. Thanks
