09.29.2016

Background:  Today, the FCC said it is delaying a vote on an order in the set-top box proceeding but remains committed to finalizing and approving the plan.

The following statement is from USTelecom President Walter McCormick:

“We’re pleased the commission is taking more time to fully consider the complex technical and legal issues in this proceeding. The course of action the commission was considering received widespread concern from both sides of Capitol Hill and the creative, content and television industries. We hope the commission will provide a meaningful opportunity for all involved to provide input on any new proposals.”
