Making the case for the CableCARD

Ed Bott: Making the case for the CableCARD Ed Bott picks up on the really important need to build and garner support for the CableCARD with the FCC. With a new Chairman to be appointed shortly, now more than ever it is important that the FCC knows where you the media consumer stand with regards to forcing the cable monopoly to open up and allow CE and PC manufacturers the ability to innovate. HDTV, Video on Demand, time shifting, IPTV and lots of other technologies depend on it.

Don’t let the cable companies hold your television hostage and try to keep up back in their “good old days,” of their controlling when you see, what you see, where you see and how you see it.

Send your thoughts to the FCC today.
