Cable Service Fees
The cost of television production and broad/cablecasting is primarily paid for by commercial advertising, which is VERY profitable. Therefore consumer subscription fees should be MUCH lower than they are. The FCC and Congress needs to correct this situation by mandating cable companies make proper use of their marketing revenues instead of passing on their costs to consumers. For instance, now that HD, Digital Signals and Broadband are the norm, we should not be charged EXTRA for them, giving rise to cable bills exceeding $150 per month, which is unacceptable. Open competition should drive prices down. The FCC and Congress/Senate needs to help us with this problem.
