NCTA Backs PEG Petition for Captioning Waiver

WASHINGTON—The NCTA is backing public, educational and government access (PEG) channels in a petition to the FCC to waive closed captioning registration or compliance certification obligations. The organization did so via a filing to the FCC, The Internet & Television Association in support of an Alliance for Community Media.

NCTA said in its filing that it supports the waiver for PEG programmers, but also wants the FCC’s Government Affairs Bureau to make clear that video program owners included in linear program networks distributed by MVPDs have no registration or certification obligations.
