Cable cross-own rules still intact
By BroadCasting & Cable Staff -- Broadcasting & Cable, 6/4/2000 8:00:00 PM
The FCC decided last week to take no action on requests to relax cable/ broadcast cross-ownership rules that bar a company from owning a cable system and TV station in the same market.
In a broad assessment of various TV-ownership issues, the commission said that the rule still "furthers the FCC goal of competition in the delivered-video-programming market."
The commission fears that a cable system could unfairly promote a local TV station it owns or unfairly discriminate against a rival station.
