Ruling good for cable companies, not viewers

Forbes reports:
The ruling looks like a clear victory for subscribers of cable services, long frustrated by awkward set-top box technology and perpetually rising subscription fees.
No, it is only a clear victory for the cable TV companies. This decision allows the cable companies to sell extra services, and charge more money. I would rather have a set-top box with a hard disc, and save programs there. I shouldn't have to pay monthly fees to view what I have already recorded.
