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.

  4. I’ve been exploring for a bit for any high quality articles or weblog posts on this kind of area .

    Exploring in Yahoo I at last stumbled upon this site.
    Reading this information So i’m satisfied to express that I have an incredibly excellent uncanny feeling
    I came upon exactly what I needed. I such a lot definitely will make certain to do not forget this web site and give it a glance on a continuing basis.

  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?
