Time Warner Cable today issued the following statement in response to legislation introduced in Congress today by Rep. Steve Scalise and Rep. Cory Gardner, as well as legislation introduced by Rep. Anna Eshoo and Rep. Zoe Lofgren.
“Time Warner Cable welcomes the introduction of the Next Generation Television Marketplace Act by Representatives Scalise and Gardner and the Video CHOICE Act by Representatives Eshoo and Lofgren. While the bills take different approaches to addressing the broken retransmission consent system, it is clear that both Democrats and Republicans recognize the escalating harm to consumers. We applaud these Members for their leadership and look forward to working on a bipartisan basis with them and other Members of the Committee as these bills progress.”
