WE PETITION THE OBAMA ADMINISTRATION TO:Thanks!
Stop the Comcast/TimeWarner Cable merger and require more competition in the cable industry
The announced merger between cable company giants Comcast and Time Warner Cable will create less choice for millions of consumers for cable TV services and offer TV producers fewer points of negotiation for distribution. This will result in higher costs for consumers through reduced competition for cable services. Enough is enough - in most areas of the U.S. there is virtually no competition for cable services and we're stuck with having to pay for dozens of cable channels that we never will watch in expensive "bundles" of content. Worse, we pay good money for these channels and then have to endure astounding amounts of advertising while viewing programming on most of them. It's time for the U.S. to develop and encourage a better way for us to get access to good TV entertainment.
