FCC will support TV a la carte pricing

If TV executives where not shaking in their boots they need to be a upcoming FCC decision could change the landscape of programming options to pro-consumer. If I could pick and choose the channels I want to pay for on my cable box. The first thing to go would be all the home shopping networks, followed by all sports channels with a couple of exceptions. I would remove all of the cartoon networks, music networks and all channels that have any form of infomercial on them. I figure by the time I was done I would probably remove about 100 channels of crap and have left over several dozen channels that actually have programming on them. Since signing up for Netflix, HBO, Cinemax and Showtime have not been watched so I might as well cancel those anyway. If the FCC moves on this decision the TV industry is going to change overnight!
