Instead of this silliness where the cable operators and networks have a legal battle on which tier of programming and cost…. let’s reintroduce market forces into cable. LET THE CONSUMERS PICK!!Then he provided the following URL, <http://www.tvalacarte.org>, for this TV À La Carte page. There, you can find the following statement:
TV A La Carte is a consumer-driven movement so we pick our own programming. Not Big Cable. And it doesn’t take much for us to have an alternative… around 1,000 folks in a concentrated area could be enough to have a small operator launch a scrappy, nimble, tech-savvy business. Join the movement!
In recent conversations with small cable operators and nascent high-tech startups, executives revealed that it could be possible for a new provider to provide high-speed Internet and cable with roughly 1,000 interested customers in a neighborhood. Through the power of social media, we could jumpstart this process by opting-into a program customized to our preferences.
Instead of waiting for a seismic shift in DC, we can create change through small, collective actions.
