FCC Chairman: cable TV from phone companies a "victory for consumers"
A U.S. Appeals court has upheld the FCC’s 2007 order that made it easier for AT&T and other phone companies to move into the video business.
The cable industry challenged the FCC’s ruling, as did states, which have long held sway over the video franchising process. Today the court disagreed, telling the complaintants, in so many words, to shut their pie holes.
