FCC Comments in Support of Massillon Cable Extension Request for Set-Top Box Waiver

Submission Date: 
04/01/2009

I. Introduction.

In numerous filings in support of set-top box waiver requests, ACA has shown the critical need for the continued availability of low-cost integrated set-top boxes in lower-density and rural markets.

ACA recommends that the Commission grant short term extensions without delay for all cable operators who (i) previously received a waiver and (ii) demonstrate good cause for an extension. Consistent with the Commission's recognition that all digital networks produce clear, non-speculative public interest benefits, short term waiver extensions will ensure the rapid completion of all digital networks in the markets where the extensions are sought.

Here, ACA submits these Comments in support of Massillon Cable TV's ("Massillon") request for an extension of time to complete its digital transition. For the reasons set forth below, ACA supports the granting of Massillon's extension request on an expedited basis.
