NCTA Asks FCC to Rescind Inquiry Letters

Nov 13, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The National Cable & Telecommunications Association has called on Federal Communications Commission Chairman Kevin Martin to rescind a letter to cable operators inquiring about the move of some channels from analog to digital tiers, Broadcasting & Cable reports. The NCTA called the FCC’s letters an abuse of the commission’s process and a violation of the Paperwork Reduction Act, B&C says. The letters were defended by Martin, who suspects the cable companies are trying to “confuse some consumers that they were going to have to go to a digital package as well” when the nation makes the switch to digital television in February.
