FCC

Telecommunications Act of 1996

From the FCC website, "The Telecommunications Act of 1996 is the first major overhaul of telecommunications law in almost 62 years. The goal of this new law is to let anyone enter any communications business -- to let any communications business compete in any market against any other."

ANTITRUST ANTITRUST COMCAST C-SPAN C-SPAN2 C-SPAN3 NBC NEWS MSNBC CNBC NBC UNIVERSAL

I am a communications business and I want to compete in the C-SPAN HD, C-SPAN2 HD and C-SPAN3 HD online commentary marketplace. Comcast is using it's monopoly position as my cable provider to prevent me from having access to C-SPAN2 HD and C-SPAN3 HD. Therefore, I am unable to compete in the HD Congressional Commentary marketplace. This is bad for DEMOCRACY and it is bad for the INDEPENDENT JOURNALISTS in Comcast's service area. This reduces diversity of opinion in the Congressional Commentary marketplace and leads to the American citizens getting their news only from official sources, such as the major broadcast networks, cable networks and movie companies such as the NBC companies.

PUBLIC INTEREST

Here is a copy of an e-mail I sent to the FCC:


Subject: Comcast refuses to carry C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 HD because they are not PROFITABLE.
Date: Mon, 27 Jul 2015 22:44:43 -0700
From: Ken M.
To: Tom.Wheeler@fcc.gov, Mignon.Clyburn@fcc.gov, Jessica.Rosenworcel@fcc.gov, Ajit.Pai@fcc.gov, Mike.ORielly@fcc.gov, campaignlaw@fcc.gov, ombudsperson@fcc.gov


I have complained to you about Comcast not providing C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 in HD.  You forwarded the complaint to Comcast and they contacted me by phone.  They contend that as a FOR-PROFIT company, it is not in the their business interests in terms of profitability to supply their 25 million customers with C-SPAN2 and C-SPAN3 in HD.

I stated that these are NONPROFIT channels that are in the PUBLIC INTEREST and of course they are not profitable to carry.  But I argued that it is their DUTY as Americans to provide these channels to the U.S. CITIZENS in its service area.  I stated that it is in the PUBLIC INTEREST.

He said, "Sorry, we are a FOR-PROFIT corporation and the demand isn't there."

I would like to escalate this complaint to the next level, given that it wasn't resolved by Comcast.

I believe it is in our national security interests for the citizens to have access to their congressional proceedings in HD.
