ABSTRACT
The article discusses the listing of the top 100 cable systems by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in the U.S. for 2008. The listing includes the 100 largest systems that have served about 54.5 million subscribers. It shows how the major operators break down their operations as well as the ones who own and manage the largest local systems. The alteration from 2008's records to that of 2007's, moreover, is considered the result of consolidation and clustering between these companies.
