PITTSBURGH, Nov. 15, 2018 – American Cable Association President and CEO Matthew M. Polka issued the following statement applauding the Federal Communications Commission on its order related to the electronic delivery of consumer communications by Multichannel Video Programming Distributors (MVPDs):
“ACA applauds FCC Chairman Ajit Pai and the rest of the FCC Commissioners for this action. The order represents another major step toward fully modernizing the FCC’s media regulations, many of which are long past due for an overhaul.
“ACA has long advocated in favor of allowing cable operators greater flexibility to communicate with their subscribers via electronic methods. It is the way today’s consumers want to interact with their cable providers, and the way their providers prefer to communicate with them. At the same time, the Order greatly benefits the environment. ACA members eagerly await these new rules becoming effective so they can take advantage of them.”
