ACA issues page lays out their case for changes

What the ACA wants is the same the big cable companies want - to get the stranglehold the big content companies have over content under control. The only difference is the small cable companies have no leverage at all, unlike Verizon, Comcast or TWC, so they pay even more. And bundled channels is their greatest issue.

Stop paying for it. Tell your customers why you're not paying for it. Lay it out in plain English, if we carry X channel(s) your costs will go up Y amount. Put the onus on the customer, and if they are happy to keep ponying up more cash every month then they deserve to have a lighter wallet.

Cable television is not a life essential service. The sooner people realize this the sooner the "stranglehold" on content will be broken.

Actually if the MSOs were up front on the entire cost of labor and what they pay per channel, etc more people would be happy. Except they never tell you how much they pay for anything.

I'm sure there's a contractual reason for that.
