Grady professor quoted about Verizon unbundling TV and internet

Taylor Cole Miller, assistant professor of media studies and academic director of Grady College’s Peabody Media Center, was quoted in a Marketplace article about Verizon’s decision to unbundle its television and internet services.

Although a representative of Verizon told Marketplace that it was a matter of transparency, the article says that it’s a revenue play.

“I think getting rid of bundling is actually only ostensibly better for the consumer,” Miller said. “Bundling actually helps a lot of niche channels, especially channels for marginalized communities, to actually have channels that are related to them.”
