- Forum: iPod + iTunes + AppleTV
Most reasonable people would argue that a cable connection is an essential service too. This is how people get on the internet, receive and send information, receive and make phone calls, access their work and educational services, etc. The fact that you own the pipe should not enable you to control in any way what is being sent through it. In fact, that is precisely what the FCC is currently doing with its net neutrality rules.
