This report discusses the relationship between incremental costs and efficient prices when capacity must be added in costly "lumps," as much of it must be in the telephone business and other capital-intensive industries. It emphasizes comparison of various pricing rules, using numerical results from an abstract computer simulation model. The author provides some quantitative comparisons of prices ......

A model of television audience shares is estimated and applied to simulate the effect of cable TV carrying distant signals on local stations' audience shares.The model is nonlinear, with a complex error covariance matrix; transformations are used to obtain generalized least squares estimates using an ordinary nonlinear regression package.The conclusion:TV broadcasting will continue to prosper, des......

A mathematical model of television network behavior, based on the assumption that networks choose their program expenditure so as to maximize their profits, is used to explore the prospects for alternative kinds of new networks.The prospects are considerably better now than they were at the time of an earlier RAND report on the subject, mostly because of a large increase in network advertising rev......

A statistical analysis of new data suggests that television broadcasting will continue to prosper, despite increasing competition from cable TV carrying distant signals. Data on cable and noncable audience in 121 countries with well-defined signal choice support generalized least squares estimates of two models: total audience and audience shares. The models are used to simulate the effect of cabl......

Analysis of broadcasting and motion picture criticisms of an earlier RAND report leaves unchanged the earlier report's conclusions that "...TV broadcasting will continue to prosper, despite increasing competition from cable." Some of the criticisms are accepted and used to produce revised projections of audience diversion due to cable. The effect of others is investigated using sensitivity analysi......

Two punched-card decks and a machine-printout documentation of the computer program for the financial model.Together, they permit interested persons to make ten-year financial projections for cable-television systems of great or small extent.The assumptions and examples of projections obtainable with this model are presented in R-943.......

The Federal Communications Commission's new regulations for cable television permit cable systems operating in the 100 largest markets to carry two (and in some cases three) distant independent stations.But the rules require that some of the distant programming be blacked out to protect programs under exclusive contract to local television stations.This report presents detailed empirical estimates......

An examination of the potential impact of cable on UHF independents, concluding that "cable seems likely to help nonnetwork UHF stations in a modest way through the 1970s.Cable's small negative impact in the 1980s will probably be unobservable — lost in the static of more decisive developments." This report goes beyond the author's previous work on the impact of cable by explaining the model......
