FCC Ends Apartment Cable Exclusivity


Posted October 30, 2007 - By bleahy

The FCC has put an end to exclusive cable deals that have been signed by apartment landlords and cable providers. This should help lower prices for apartment tenants.

The FCC has "seen cable prices rise about three times the rate of inflation over the last decade," and note that "40 percent of households headed by Hispanics and African-Americans live in" apartment buildings.

As Gizmodo notes, this could just be a nice thing the FCC is doing, but it could also be the result of pressure from telecomm companies like Verizon and AT&T that want to offer their television service to these homes.

At any rate, prices should go down if you live in an apartment.
