Biennial Survey of Cable Industry Prices, FCC Form 333

OMB 3060-0647

OMB 3060-0647

The Communications Act (Act) requires the Federal Communications Commission (Commission) to publish annually a statistical report (Report), on the average rates (prices) cable operators charge for the basic service, and other cable programming services, including lease of equipment. The Act requires the Commission to compare prices of cable operators subject to effective competition to the prices of operators not subject to effective competition, under a statutorily defined standard. To meet this Congressional mandate, the Commission’s Annual Survey of Cable Industry Prices (Survey) collects the information needed to prepare the Report. FCC Form 333 is the survey instrument (questionnaire) for collecting the information. Each year, to implement the Survey, the Media Bureau releases an Order directing a randomly selected sample of cable operators across communities nationwide to complete the Form-333 questionnaire. Consistent with requirements of the Communications Act, this questionnaire solicits data on the basic service and other cable programming services. To calculate annual changes, it requests prices and other data for January 1 of the survey year and preceding year. The questionnaire is the basis of the information and analysis in the Report. This revised survey collection questionnaire being submitted contains changes to the currently approved questionnaire. Revisions are necessary, in part to meet requirements under Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act Reauthorization Act (STELAR). Further, we are removing questions related to a Congressional requirement that has sunset, and other questions no longer of sufficient value. Also, following discussions with survey respondents, we clarify several questions and instructions. Finally, we revise the numeric order of some questions, so respondents may better cross-reference related questions.
