The information collection requirement covered by this collection imposes a notification requirement on small cable operators that become ineligible for the exemption from the “material degradation” provisions of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended, which require cable operators, among other things, to carry high definition broadcast signals in HD. In particular, the information collection requires that, beginning December 12, 2016, at the time a small cable system utilizing the HD carriage exemption offers any programming in HD, the system must give notice that it is offering HD programming to all broadcast stations in its market that are carried on its system. Cable operators must also keep records of such notification. This information collection requirement allows affected broadcast stations to monitor compliance with the requirement that cable operators transmit high definition broadcast signals in HD.
