Among those items are three relevant to broadcasters:

  • Program Carriage and Program Access: a Report and Order modifying program carriage rules and procedures and a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking seeking comment on the practices of programmers and broadcasters;
  • DTV Translators: a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking for a new digital television translator service for analog loss areas; and
  • DTV Consumer Education Notice of Apparent Liability: an omnibus NAL against various companies for apparent violations of the commission’s DTV consumer education requirements.
