UPDATE: The FCC statement is here in Word and here in Acrobat. The relevant information is near the end.
Weren't we just talking about picking and choosing channels? I wonder if the FCC is reading HD Beat. According to a recent article in on CNN Money, the Wall Street Journal indicates that the FCC is expected to suggest (key word) to cable companies that they offer consumer choice for individual channels. This would be more like an "a la carte" or "make your own" package; something that I think would go over very well with a majority of the public, depending on the cost.
Last year, the FCC researched the cost of such a model and determined that it would cost the consumer more than the package bundles we see today. Perhaps someone did the math wrong because the report is getting revised to show the opposite: individual choice could cost less for the consumer in a "pay for what you watch" type of model.
