John McCain introduces bill promoting 'a la carte' television offering

05/09, 9:34pm

Bill also proposes total elimination of sporting broadcast blackout rules

The act as it stands is voluntary, offering incentives to companies operating in accordance with the directive, rather than severely penalizing recalcitrant companies for noncompliance.
