TV Multicasting on Cable Vote Delayed by FCC

TV Multicasting on Cable Vote Delayed by FCC

A proposal to require cable companies to carry all the digital channels of over-the-air TV broadcasters has dropped off the FCC’s agenda for its open meeting this Wednesday. An agency spokeswoman said in a statement there didn’t appear to be enough votes to carry the proposal.
Several broadcast ownership items remain on the agenda, however, including reviews of the radio market definition, multiple ownership of radio stations and cross-ownership of broadcast stations and newspapers in a market.
This will be the first public meeting for new Commissioner Robert McDowell, and the first monthly agenda meeting in more than a year at which the agency will have its full complement of five commissioners.
