American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement about the June 27 hearing on "The Future of Video" held by the House Subcommittee on Communications and Technology.
"ACA is extremely pleased by the broad bipartisan interest in assessing whether the 1992 Cable Act is still appropriate for today's market realities," Polka said. "We are also pleased that so many Members of Congress clearly expressed concern that retransmission consent rules may be leading to consumer harm, especially TV signal blackouts against pay-TV providers staged by broadcasters. It's clear there is growing support to reform the 1992 law and examine the issues ACA has been raising for years."
