In 2019, the Commission adopted new
rules governing the delivery and form of carriage election notices.
Electronic Delivery of MVPD Communications, Modernization of Media
Regulation Initiative, MB Docket Nos. 17-105, 17-317, Report and
Order and Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking, FCC 19-69, 2019 WL
3065517 (rel. Jul. 11, 2019). Pursuant to that decision, the public
file obligations of DBS providers were slightly modified.
Therefore, the following information collection requirement needs
review and approval from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB):
47 CFR 25.701(f)(6)(i)(D) requires that each satellite carrier
shall provide an up-to-date email address for carriage election
notice submissions and an up-to-date phone number for
carriage-related questions. Each satellite carrier is responsible
for the continuing accuracy and completeness of the information
furnished. It must respond to questions from broadcasters as soon
as is reasonably possible.
USC 335 Name of Law: Communications Act of 1934, as amended
There is a program change to
this collection of +1 hour to the annual burden hours. This program
change is due to the information collection requirements adopted in
FCC 19-69. There are no adjustments to this collection.
