The article reports that digital TV (DTV) Norwich, an affiliate of Cablevision Systems Corp., received a Federal Communications Commission (FCC) license for wireless services in New York City, but the agency warned that the affiliate would forfeit the license if it failed to rectify a crossownership violation within 270 days. DTV Norwich bid for a multichannel- video-distribution and data service (MVDDS) license in an FCC auction held in January. The company did so even though FCC rules ban the common ownership of an MVDDS licensee and a cable system in the same market. Cablevision is the New York City region's dominant cable operator.
