TWC, all cable companies face 'disconnect' with FCC


Numerous sources report the FCC has voted for proposed rules that would require cable companies to provide information like channel and on-demand listings to other companies. If approved, your cable subscription would no longer be tied to a set top box provided by the cable company. Instead, it could be accessed through devices like Apple TV, Android TVRoku, game consoles, and internet giants like Google, even Amazon.  ▶SOURCE ▶ FCC Ruling Could Shake Up Cable Companies - IGN News

Those who live in common interest developments (aka HOAs) like this blogger and my 1,317 neighbors (not to mention some 70 million more HOA members around the USA) may take special delight in this prospect because our current cable rates are sky high due mainly to the relative lack of consumer choice. What's more, our TGI HOA community in Southern California, the Inland Empire area south of Corona has a peculiar captive arrangement with the cable company that has prompted a long-standing legal tiff between the HOA, the original property developer, and TimeWarner Cable. Case has no particular relevance on the FCC matter, but it does represent local dissatisfaction with cable TV matters. Topping that list of complaints is the escalating cost of cable services, mainly when multiple services are bundled: cable, phone, and internet.

Condo owner curations

Around the community where we have lived since November 2011, a condominium, or condo, is not hard to define, even if the 170 condo units represent a small number compared to the total of 1317 homeowners in our entire HOA. Condos are the form of housing tenure and other real property where a specified part of a piece of real estate is collectively (in common) owned. Use of land access to common facilities in the community such as the exterior of buildings, roadways, green belts, pathways, and other non-residential structures are executed under legal rights associated with the common ownership. These rights are controlled by the association of owners that jointly represent ownership of the whole piece.
