ABSTRACT
The article reports on Massillon Cable's free cable-television service proposal. The proposal would benefit the consumers for they would receive free cable-television service while guaranteeing local TV stations that their analog- and digital-TV channels will be distributed over cable. Moreover, it is designed to alleviate the impact of the shutdown of analog-TV broadcasts that would require households to acquire conversion equipment or new TV sets to view digital-TV signals.
