Like,  its fair to break anti-trust laws, and subsidize broadband sales by 
TV and phone revenue.


Not sure, why Verizon doesn't cry, they are just a data provider, and set up 
Video feeds in another state, and bill/deliver TV over another company name?

Oh yeah, thats right, then they can't bundle to have the unfair advantage.

WASHINGTON - The nation's chief telecommunications regulator stands 
accused of misrepresenting the facts while pushing through rules that will 
make it easier for big phone companies to get into cable television.

As quoted from another article;

The congressional grilling will be of interest to investors in more 
than just ATT and Verizon. Comcast  (nasdaq: CMCSA -  news  -  people 
), Time Warner  (nyse: TWX -  news  -  people ), Cablevision  (nyse: CVC 
-  news  -  people ), Liberty Global  (nasdaq: LBTYA -  news  -  people 
) and other entrenched cable providers have a stake in the future of 
this disputed regulation. So do TV viewers everywhere. Cable rates have 
risen 93% since 1990, and consumers should benefit from more competition.

Correct me if I am wrong, but wouldn't it be better if both cable and 
telco could compete in each others markets?

Like we have benefited from phone competition and our local rates are so 
low.


DBS is cheaper -- but it has not affected the broadcast TV rates.
