The article reports on the new proposal by Federal Communications Commission chairman Kevin Martin which states that small cable systems would no longer have to retransmit the high-definition signals of television stations in the U.S. The proposal is conceived after Martin was pressured with regards to his prior proposal stating that every cable system will carry TV stations in both analog and digital formats. Martin claims that the new one would relax the atmosphere caused by the original.
