Most people in the United States who pay for TV have to use a set-top-box rented from their cable provider. In February, the Federal Communications Commission voted to adopt a plan that could change that by requiring TV providers to open up the data streams so that you could access content on something like a Roku, Chromecast, or Apple TV.

But the cable, satellite, and other TV providers are fighting back.

In this episode of the LPX Show, we take a look at the FCC's #UnblockTheBox effort... and the industry's proposed alternative, #EliminateTheBox.
