ABSTRACT
The article reports that the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) will vote on a proposal to allow television stations to demand digital and analog carriage on cable systems until the systems had shifted subscribers to a digital-only platform. The FCC killed dual must-carry proposals in 2001 and 2005. But those plans related to dual carriage during the transition. FCC chairman Kevin Martin's plan would take effect after TV stations have ceased analog transmission.
