Re: That's an excellent idea (John Kerry Bill)
said by Sammer:Must-carry elected stations do not receive a fee from the cable company, while those who wish to be compensated are not required to be carried. The programming producers set what they think is a market price and the cable system decides whether they want to pay that much for it. It's called arriving at a valuation for a product, and is very much a free market. You are confusing the product with the package.
Cable TV [...]is forced to carry broadcast stations that elect must-carry and has to pay to carry those that don't, etc.
