The Federal Communications Commission seems to have little interest in regulating usage-based pricing or pushing cable to switch to an a la carte system, judging by remarks made by two members at The Cable Show in Washington, D.C. Democratic FCC member Jessica Rosenworcel said consumers will drive any changes to how programming is sold, and Republican FCC member Ajit Pai similarly said the market would likely determine usage-based pricing. Meanwhile, Sen. John McCain, R-Ariz., in a letter to acting FCC Chairwoman Mignon Clyburn, asked for the FCC to review a la carte pricing.
