Telco pressure keeps cable TV rates moderate

The Wall Street Journal also reports that pressure from telcos entering the pay TV market will make next year's cable TV rate increase the lowest in years. Comcast, for example, will raise the cost of its 75-channel analog service from about $41 a month to $43 a month, on average. That would make for the company's lowest rate increase in more than a decade. Time Warner will not raise the rates at all for the Dallas and Los Angeles markets. Cablevision has also indicated it won't raise its rates for New York City-based subscribers.
