Would this idea be better for the USA cable market?
Have all channel numbers be the same regardless of the parent cable/FiOS provider. The cable/FiOS company can reprogram the boxes to display the same channel number for each network, EXCEPT for the local broadcast and local community stations. This question only affects national networks, such as CNN, HLN, and ESPN, and ID. (Note, some boxes do not have channel displays, and would not be affected). Some customers may not even have company provided boxes(direct connection), and also would not be affected.
