A great TV deal! Too bad it's illegal in most of Florida

Just in case you had the faintest doubt that allowing telephone companies to compete with cable TV monopolies would result in cheaper rates -- a proposal that the cable companies are fighting like mad dogs in the Florida legislature right now -- ATT has just announced it will offer a free year of high-definition programming to any customer who signs up for HD service through its U-verse TV subscription television operation. (The same deal is also available to customers who buy Direct TV or Dish Network satellite service through ATT.) When is the last time your cable company monopoly offered you anything but excuses? Competition produces better service and better prices. The only people who think otherwise are the cable company monopolists and their toadies in the legislature and local government.
