Senator Wants Price of Cable Reduced

Nov 19, 2008  •  Post A Comment

Sen. Bernard Sanders, I-Vt., is poised to introduce legislation requiring cable companies to provide local TV signals at a reduced cost indefinitely to households that will lose over-the-air service after February’s digital television switch, Multichannel News reports. The senator is concerned about millions losing TV service when analog signals are turned off. “That is why I am introducing legislation that would require cable, satellite and other paid TV companies to provide a basic broadcast service to those consumers who have lost channels due to the DTV transition at a reduced cost, indefinitely,” the senator said in a letter to his colleagues.
