Cable TV “failing” as a business, cable industry lobbyist says

Basic-cable TV prices have been rising faster than inflation for 20 years, according to Federal Communications Commission data. The fact that cable companies rarely compete against each other directly in cities and towns helps them keep prices high, and customers have begun filing lawsuits over “broadcast TV” and “regional sports” fees that push cable prices above the advertised rates. – Jon Brodkin, Ars Technica
