Consumers Union letter to the FCC on the Set-Top Box Order

Consumers Union, the policy and mobilization arm of Consumer Reports, writes to urge the FCC to complete its work and enact the Set-Top Box Order.

This common-sense reform is long overdue. It would directly benefit consumers who currently have little, if any, choice but to rent a set-top box from their pay-TV providers for months, and even years, in perpetuity.
