FCC Moves to Place Restrictions on Cable TV

"FCC Chairman Kevin J. Martin would like the commission to vote on what is known as the 'lease access' rule by the FCC's next meeting, scheduled for Nov. 27, and is optimistic that he has the three commission votes needed for passage. The proposed rule comes as a result of the agency's annual review of competition in the video industry.

Martin has pushed a number of actions directed toward the cable industry, notably trying to persuade cable companies to offer their channels on an a la carte basis to subscribers, instead of requiring consumers to purchase tiers of channels."
