Public television, cable ratify multicast agreement

Public television stations serving markets comprising more than 80 percent of U.S. TV households and cable Multiple System Operators (MSOs) representing more than 80 percent of cable subscribers last month ratified a previously announced digital multicast carriage agreement.

The Public Television Digital Cable Carriage Agreement, announced in late January by the Association of Public Television Stations (APTS), the Public Broadcasting Service (PBS) and the National Cable & Telecommunications Association (NCTA), ensures that local public television stations’ digital programming will be carried on cable systems serving the vast majority of the nation’s cable subscribers. MSOs will begin adding the digital PTV stations to their local cable systems pursuant to the agreement later this year.
