Pay-TV watch: Canada moves to a la carte while U.S. stays bundled

|By:, SA News Editor

Canada is ahead of the game in pushing for an a la carte TV pricing model, according to Rogers Communications' Ken Engelhart.

The exec thinks the whole system is subject to being lost to the Internet and Netflix if consumers aren't giving the option to only pay for what they watch.

The Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission will review the nation's broadcast system this fall - while in the U.S. the Pay-TV (CHTR, CVC, CMCSA, TWC, DISH, DTV) industry has been successful in keeping Congress at bay on the issue.
