The article reports on the reasons why Comcast changed their PEG channels to digital lineup in Michigan. Comcast executive vice president David Cohen states that they changed their PEG channels due to its failure to transmit their goals to their local partners. Comcast intends to use limited channel capacity through the all-digital services provider such as video networks and satellite-TV services. It also wants to compete with its major competitors with all-digital consumer marketing.
