Why You Should Join
Help protect American consumers from uncontrolled price gouging by ATSC digital television standard patent holders. You can help encourage the FCC to keep these patent holders accountable and bring down the price of digital TVs in the United States by joining CUT FATT.
If the FCC takes action to prevent these patent holders from overcharging American consumers, companies like VIZIO and Westinghouse Digital will pass these savings on to the consumer. This could represent a savings of $30 per digital TV.
With the digital transition date approaching on June 12, 2009, Americans have no choice. Anyone who buys a television must pay the ATSC tolls, and with analog service going dark, Americans must buy televisions. Unfortunately, in this critical transition year, consumers will be overcharged up to a billion dollars and perhaps even more.
