Re: The Monopolizing of MLB's Extra Innings Package
It's actually ironic this thread got bumped. There's new legislation proposed in congress aimed at the broadcasting industry that would force cable operators to offer a la carte programming to those who want it. Of course, that would drive up the price of each channel if sold separately.
But relevant to this topic, the bill reportedly includes language that would put an end to sports blackout restrictions entirely.
