Taiwan watchdog eyes cable TV

World Brief

After a year of haggling, Taiwan’s new media watchdog the National Communications Commission has set its priorities as reforming the cable TV industry and addressing telco competition.

NCC will concentrate on preserving fair competition in the telco market, protecting consumers, enforcing regulations and promoting diversity in TV programming, one of its members said.

One of the first items on its agenda is reviewing regulations governing the cable TV market. Cablers hope that the NCC will finally raise price caps on monthly subscribers’ fees, which have been kept low for a decade. Cablers claim the cap gives them no incentive to offer more services to consumers.
