TIME WARNER CABLE ISSUES STATEMENT REGARDING THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION'S DECISION TO REVIEW BROKEN RETRANSMISSION CONSENT RULES

Release Date: 03/03/2011

(NEW YORK, NY) – “We applaud the FCC for initiating a rulemaking to reform the broken retransmission consent system.  By launching this proceeding, the FCC has recognized that it is time to change outdated government rules that favor broadcasters over consumers.  We are pleased that the FCC has listened to the broad and diverse voices that have been calling for change, especially viewers who have suffered through broadcaster blackouts and blackout threats.  We hope the Commission will explore the broad authority granted to it by Congress to address the issues raised in its Notice.  We look forward to working with the Commission to achieve meaningful reforms that level the playing field and protect viewers.”
