Submission + - Cablevision suing Viacom over cable bundling (

aws910 writes: In an article by LA Times, Cablevision (a huge cable network) is suing Viacom (owner of MTV, nickelodeon, etc), alleging they are violating US federal anti-trust laws by requiring programming packages to be bundled. If they are victorious, it would be a tiny step closer to "a la carte cable", but not much — Cablevision just wants to make their own bundles, and not give the customer the freedom to choose which channels they get. Where can I get my "kill your tv" bumper sticker from?
