FCC Will Go Ahead With Its Plan To Make Cable Boxes Suck Less

Today, the FCC decided in a 3-2 vote to keep going down the road that will (hopefully) make all our cable boxes suck less. Not only will this plan probably save you some serious cash, it will also bring a much-needed injection of competition from third parties, meaning your cable box may actually not suck in the future.

The FCC main goals are cheaper cable bills and better internet programming, which is something we can all agree on. During the vote, FCC chairman Tom Wheeler said, “Technology allows it; the industry at one time proposed something similar to it; and consumers deserve a break and a choice.” Damn straight, Tom.
