What competition are they reducing?????? Explain that??? TWC and Comcast do NOT compete in anyway shape or form.
And this is part of the problem. Comcast has no competition (with the exception of FIOS in a few locations). Comcast can already basically do whatever they feel like. Outlet fees? Yep. Fees for using your own equipment? Sure. Fees for pulling in OTA broadcasts? Sure why not.
Though the reduction in competition he is talking about is actually in the industry, not on the consumer level. When you have one de facto provider of TV/Internet, that company has a huge amount of leverage over other companies, even if they don't directly compete.
Remember also, that Comcast isn't just a Cable TV/Internet provider, they are a multi-media company that owns NBC-Universal. They can charge themselves nothing or very little for channels they own and also license TV/movies from studios they own to them for next to nothing as well. You'd be surprised by what Comcast owns
