ABSTRACT
The article reports on the support given by the National Cable & Telecommunications Association to the independent cable operators on issue of an exemption on dual-carriage in the U.S. The rule, implemented by the Federal Communications Commission, mandates that cable systems have to distribute both the analog and digital signals of must-carry television stations. Moreover, the American Cable Association is lobbying for a blanket exemption for operators with limited channel capability.
