  • Cable, rivals lobby FCC over program-access rule
    The National Cable and Telecommunications Association was among the groups meeting with the Federal Communications Commission over the past 10 days about the future of the program-access rule's prohibition on exclusive contracts between pay-TV operators and their co-owned channels, filings show. The NCTA is pushing for the end of the ban on Oct. 5, because of the "robust and irreversible competition that characterizes today's video marketplace." Other groups and companies, including Verizon, AT&T, Public Knowledge, DIRECTV and DISH, want the prohibition to be completely or partially kept, at least for sports networks and other "non-replicable" content.

  • Sources: DISH wants to create online alternative to pay TV
    DISH Network is said to be negotiating with Viacom, Univision and Scripps Networks Interactive about licensing their TV programming for a Web-based TV service. The over-the-top offering would offer a smaller bundle of live channels than is typically offered by pay-TV providers, and would be accessible via desktop or tablet. None of the companies commented on the potential deals. Bloomberg (9/27), Reuters (9/27) LinkedInFacebookTwitterEmail this Story
