ABSTRACT
The article presents information on the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC), which is planning to implement an obsolete technology of the 1990s for cable television services. In 1996, FCC created rules to enhance competition for devices related to cable services. It required cable operators to make available CableCARDs, which could be inserted into a set-top box. However, consumers were not ready to purchase the set-top boxes, and leased them from their cable providers.
