Cable Operators Seek FCC White Space Protection B&C

Cable operators are asking the Federal Communications Commission to reconsider its decision allowing devices access to the white space between DTV channels, citing the potential for transmission interference, Broadcasting & Cable reports. The National Cable and Telecommunications Association filed the petition, noting the FCC “gave little regard to the impact on existing and up-and-coming cable services,” the trade says. The NCTA found in its own “independent testing” that the devices allowed to use white spaces will cause “harmful interference” with cable signals, B&C adds, citing the NCTA’s petition.
