Free the Box

I don’t know about you, but I find set-top cable boxes to be a real pain to use. The user interfaces of both Time Warner and Verizon FiOS are awful. They are clunky, hard to search, and require far too many steps and time to do some simple things, like watch shows on demand, and further,they are expensive to rent.

Up until now there have been no alternatives. However, Obama and the FCC may change this situation by forcing the cable providers to open the market to competitive products.

I am looking forward to this development. Maybe, someday soon, we will be using our Apple TV or Roku to control everything on our TV.
