The article discusses the U.S. Federal Communications (FCC) filing by the National Cable and Telecommunications Association on the exclusivity ban preventing exclusive agreements between programming networks and cable operators. Echostar Communications Corp. asserts the ban is needed since cable providers have showed they have the ability to make use of the rights to discriminate against other multichannel video providers. The filings are in response to a docket the FCC opened in February 2007.
