>>>Gee, now this (ESPN Live 360) won't make the Cable-Op internet providers
>>>have an unfair advantage over traditional ISPs!
>>>
>>>You have to imagine that the cable-op's are negotiating this "internet
>>>service" into their network programming agreements with EPSN, whereas if you
>>>are a non-cable-op you will have to pay outright and separate for the
>>>service and then pass along that fee to all of your subscribers or more
>>>likely... eat the cost.
>>>
>>>This is another case where a utility is able to abuse its monopoly power to
>>>the disadvantage of a non-utility ISP.  The regulated and non-regulated
>>>portions of a company that engages in internet service need to be forced to
>>>conduct business as arms-length transactions.
>>>
>>>For instance... if MegaCableCompany operates as a Cable TV provider and
>>>operates as an internet provider, the Cable TV provider business unit is
>>>regulated and enjoys an advantage as a utility, whereas the Internet
>>>Provider Business Unit is unregulated and operates in an open market.  The
>>>Cable TV unit is free to negotiate terms for TV programming from the various
>>>networks.  The Internet Unit is free to negotiate terms of service for
>>>internet related valued-added-services.  Whereas, the Cable TV unit should
>>>not be permitted to negotiate terms for unrelated internet services.  (i.e.
>>>ESPN Live 360).  The CableTV unit as a utility providing TV service should
>>>have no interest in internet valued added services.  However, in the
>>>alternative... if the Cable TV unit were permitted to negotiate terms for
>>>unrelated internet services, it should be prepared to offer those services
>>>to the open market at the same rate that it charges its own Internet Service
>>>Business Unit!!
>>>
>>>Of course.. this argument may sound familiar to some of you...  I've made
>>>this same argument time and time again for the unbundling of network
>>>elements within the TelCo monopolies.  If you sell phone service as a
>>>utility, your associated unregulated ISP business unit should not enjoy
>>>preferential pricing with regards to internet transport or internet
>>>termination.
