"TV rates have continued to rise with the entry of the baby bells into the market...The promise of lower TV prices is simply used as a PR carrot on a stick (see Bell franchise reform) in order to get baby bell-lobbied laws passed -- with Kevin Martin's help."
Kevin Martin is assured a lucrative position in 2009, so I understand his motivation....but why do so many on this board buy into the Bellspeak?
TV rates are still high because the nexus of control is with the content providers and not with the access providers. Hollywood and the 4 major entertainment companies control prices. Having the telcos deliver TV in addition to cable and satellite has not changed that fact at all.--
