Time Warner, Comcast Confirm Consideration of Family Tier

David Lieberman writes in USA Today:

Time Warner and Comcast executives confirmed Thursday that they're mulling letting customers who object to violent and risqué programming subscribe just to a collection of "family-friendly" cable channels.

"The cable industry needs to find a creative and appropriate response to the mounting concerns" in Washington about indecency, Time Warner CEO Richard Parsons said after speaking at a Credit Suisse First Boston media conference.

If the No. 2 cable operator does alter its subscription offerings, he said, it will be "sooner rather than later, but I can't be more specific."
