Media Bureau seeks more information to complete cable report
The FCC Media Bureau last week said it will require select cable operators to complete a supplemental questionnaire by Sept. 29 for its annual statistical report on average rates for basic cable TV service, cable programming and equipment.
- The questionnaire is intended to provide the bureau with information beyond that provided in an earlier questionnaire. The latest inquiry seeks to find out if analog only, digital only or a combination is provided. It also wants more information on the types of converters subscribers use.
- Cable operators selected to complete the supplemental questionnaire are the same as those randomly selected earlier this year to complete the earlier 2007/2008 survey questionnaire.
