Comcast to strike conciliatory tone in congressional hearing
(wgvu) - WASHINGTON (AP) - A Comcast executive is apologizing for the way
the cable company handled a proposed shift of community access
programming in Michigan.
Representative John Dingell, a Dearborn Democrat, is chairman of
the House Energy and Commerce Committee.
He was summoning Comcast and others before a House subcommittee
to answer questions about the company's interest in moving public,
educational and governmental access programming into the 900-level
digital channel range in Michigan.
The shift would require subscribers with analog televisions to
buy digital, cable-ready TVs or rent or buy a digital converter box
for each set.
