Pick and pay for the channels you want.<br>That’s how cable should be.

Below is a typical Expanded Basic cable package*. Uncheck the networks you don't want and we'll calculate your new bill. Sadly, this is just a demonstration of "how cable should be" and won't reduce your real cable bill. We'll use your vote – the choices you voice here – to help educate the public and tell cable companies, programmers, and our public servants that bringing consumer choice to cable is a must!

Cable, Meet Choice. Choice, Meet Cable.

You should be able to choose and pay only for the cable channels you watch. Not a sports fan? Why should you have to pay over $80 per year for ESPN, ESPN2 and one -- or often more -- regional sports networks? Offended by Comedy Central, MTV, E! and SPIKE? Why should you have to fork over $30 per year for programming you can't abide?

 

Understanding the Racket

Let's start with the consolidated ownership of cable networks: 4 companies own the 10 networks with the highest programming fees; and, 6 mega-media companies own the 20 networks with the highest programming fees. Put differently, 6 companies pretty much rule Expanded Basic.
