The FCC report confirms that escalating costs have challenged all multichannel video providers, with cable systems facing head-to-head competition experiencing the same price increases as all others.

It’s worth noting that prices per channel remain relatively constant, despite substantial operator investment in programming and personnel to support cable’s more advanced services.

The bottom line is that cable customers are receiving more channels and better value for their dollar than ever before. In addition, cable consumers are enjoying the benefits of high speed Internet access, cable telephone service, interactive television, and other advanced services. All of these services are offered in a highly competitive environment.
