FCC Contemplates Changes In Cable Set-Top Box Market

F.C.C. Proposes Changes in Cable Set-Top Box Market

Cecilia Kang and Emily Steel | January 27, 2016

The cable set-top box, long a scourge of consumers and a moneymaker for cable companies, appears set for a makeover.
The Federal Communications Commission on Wednesday announced a proposal allowing cable and satellite subscribers to pick the devices they use to watch programming. Nearly all customers now must get their boxes from their cable companies, and they pay an average of $231 a year to lease the devices.
The move could have broad implications for the industry, allowing Google, Amazon and Apple, for instance, to expand their footprints in the media industry with devices that would blend Internet and cable programming in a way the television industry has resisted.
