US senators launch á la carte TV proposal

August 12, 2014

The proposal puts forth the idea to let subscribers to cable and satellite services be allowed to choose which broadcast channels they want to pay for as part of their multichannel package — a move that would reduce retransmission fee revenue for broadcasters (which comes in at about $4 billion annually and is steadily increasing), but which would give pay-TV operators more leverage when it comes to content carriage negotiations, thus hopefully heading off the TV blackouts that sometimes arise.
