Statement of Robert Sachs, NCTA President & CEO Regarding GAO Report on Cable TV Industry

<p>GAO’s analysis confirms that cable price increases reflect significant investments by cable operators in infrastructure and programming, which have improved the quality and consumer value of cable television. The report also shows, significantly we believe, that proposals to reregulate cable program service would not benefit consumers. Rather, forcing cable operators to package programming a la carte, would produce a net loss for many cable customers, who would end up paying higher prices for fewer channels.</p>

COMMENTS OF NCTA PRESIDENT & CEO ROBERT SACHS REGARDING ESPN NATIONAL PRESS CLUB BRIEFING

<p><b>Washington D.C. - </b>Cable prices reflect a variety of cost factors that have increasingly made cable a better product and consumer value. These factors include the increased cost of labor to deliver and support services, the rising cost of providing quality programming, significant capital investment in technology to provide new cable services, and interest to service this investment.
