Tell the FCC: #UnlockTheBox!

Big Cable's monopoly on set top boxes forces millions of Americans pay them money for nothing. And even worse, this racket is locking us out of a more open, diverse, and accessible media.

Big Cable is stifling innovation and competition by restricting what we are able to access through their devices. The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) can change this and turn a stagnant element of the electronics landscape into an innovative one that could bring more diversity in programming to our TVs.

It’s time for the FCC to break up this racket. Submit your public comment to Chairman Tom Wheeler now
