GAO Report - FCC Should Consider Scaling Back Pricing Reports

While cable prices have risen 33% from ’05 to ’12 (well above the 15% in the Consumer Price Index), the FCC may want to think about less frequent reporting on cable industry prices and competition. So concludes a GAO report on the video marketplace released Tues. The report notes that the FCC failed to publish its cable industry price report 4 times (’04, ’06, ’07 and ’10) and hasn’t published its video competition report 4 times (’07, ’08, ’10 and ’11). Read on for why the FCC missed the reports and findings reported by the GAO regarding cable prices, increased competition and online video providers.
