The Federal Communications Commission (“FCC”) today asked for comment on proposals to ensure all cable subscribers, including those with analog TV sets, can view must-carry television stations on cable systems after the transition to digital television occurs on February 17, 2009.
The Commission is committed to minimizing the burden to consumers related to the transition. About 50% of all cable subscribers, or approximately 32 million households, are analog cable subscribers, and many digital cable subscribers have one or more television sets that only receive analog cable service. The goal of this proceeding is to prevent service disruption for those consumers.
