Consumers in Anaheim, California will soon be enjoying a choice in
video providers. Thanks to advances in digital
technology, video service can now be transmitted via phone
lines. In March, the city government approved AT&T's request to
offer such service, the first in California to do so. Consumers in
other cities, however, may not be so lucky, as cable TV
franchise rules stand in the way of this new technology.
Relief the way, however, as Congress considers this month
legislation to expedite TV choice.
Join us as our panelists examine and assess the politics and
economics of cable competition.
