Cable Television and the Impact of Regulation
AbstractRecently proposed regulations by the Federal Communications Commission would allow cable television firms to import distant television signals into major urban markets, require local origination of programs by the cable system, and set minimum requirements for channel capacity, signal quality, and fees paid to copyright owners and to non-commercial television stations.
