Obama Calls for Cable Box Competition

Hosted by  • 

President Obama calls for increased competition aimed at freeing consumers from their dependence on leased cable television boxes. The goal is to allow innovators to sell higher quality devices, at lower cost, that could let viewers watch their favorite programs via cable, satellite or streaming online services through one easy-to-use gadget. Goodbye cable box, Apple TV, computer modem. The idea is to consolidate access to all those platforms in one convenient device. Brian Fung, technology reporter for the Washington Post, has an update.
