The article offers the author's prediction on the cable television industry in 2011. The author says that three-dimensional (3-D) technology might appeal to sports fans as multichannel video programming distributors (MVPDs) will continue competing in some other basis than price. He also states that in the context of video via broadband, consumption billing starts to look like a la carte. He cites AT&T U-verse and switched digital video systems as a la carte delivery means with flat-free pricing.
