New FCC Regulations for US Cable Market

A New York Times story this weekend notes the FCC is planning to "impose significant new regulations to open the cable television market to independent programmers and rival video services after determining that cable companies have become too dominant in the industry, senior commission officials said."  This story follows reports a few weeks ago the FCC also plans to place a ban on exclusive cable contracts with multi-dwelling in late October.  In both cases, these planned regulations are intended to create more competition in TV services.  No doubt, US IPTV service providers are paying close attention to how these play out.
