The article reports that the U.S. Federal Communications has finally sided with more than two decades of consumer research that shows multichannel video subscribers desire to select the individual channels that they pay for. Regardless of how many channels are provided, consumers regularly watch somewhere between 17 and 19 of those channels. This number has only grown by five or six channels in over the past decade, but the tricky part is that everyone's 17 or so channels, after accounting for the major broadcast networks, are different.
