Quick question

Most technology gets cheaper over time, so why is the cost of satellite and cable TV going up?

    Lob is right in one sense. I think also its because cable and satellite fees aren’t really for the technology. They are for the subscription costs for the channels. Television is partially subsidized by the all the advertisements, but if those ads aren’t worth as much now (due to erosion of viewers by the internet/TIVO/etc), costs to the consumer will rise.

    Ian,
    That’s a good explanation.
