FCC agrees on carriage dispute resolution

Tuesday 2 August 2011 | 09:22 CET | News
The FCC passed a new order changing its procedures for dealing with carriage disputes. The regulator held a consultation on the issue earlier this year, after a number of fee disputes between pay-TV providers and TV channels led to certain channels going off the air. The new rules allow the FCC to declare a stand still if one of the parties files a complaint with the regulator. Pending the FCC's decision, the parties would not be allowed to change their existing carriage agreement. The decision further sets the requirements of such a complaint and deadlines for the FCC to reach a decision.
