Sony PS Vue is done.

It would appear that my SageTV backup plan just went in the dumper.

Soon, Sherman Anti Trust talk better start - for companies to own the manufacturing and delivery process, especially under monopolies - what am I missing? Streaming isnít getting better, and cable rates are going up instead of down when you factor cable internet into the pricing. They arenít hurting at all, and arenít being forced to compete. Itís criminal, but since Chief Criminal and former GOP lobbyist Ajit Pai heads the FCC....well we shouldnít be surprised.

Donít hold your breath for anything pro-consumer under the current administration.

It doesn't matter what administration we're under with regard to the FCC and Ajit Pai. It's a stacked deck in any case.

No, but Ajit was put in by the current admin. Wheeler was there before and was much better (though expectations were pretty low for him too).

many will say the real downfall came back when ClearChannel was given carte blanche to do whatever they wanted, own all the mediaís they wanted etc. After that, it was a green light for the Comcast model to reign....fire down on us all....lol

Ajit was "put in" to the FCC by the previous administration, reinforced by the current. That's why I leaned towards politics not mattering as it's corruption all the way around with regard to communications.

Like I said, the damage started back many years. Sadly, the general public seem completely comatose to what the FCC is, what it used to be and what itís become. Once upon a time, it actually made rules to favor the general public.
