Oh Oh...Everything Crossed! FCC officials wouldn't disclose details about the conditions Thursday because commissioners were still reviewing Genachowski's proposal. But two people outside the FCC described them to The Associated Press. They had knowledge of the details but spoke on condition of anonymity because the discussions were confidential. One measure aims to guarantee that satellite operators, phone companies and rival cable TV services can still get access to NBC broadcast and cable channels, Comcast's regional sports networks and other must-have programming at reasonable prices. That condition would mandate arbitration to settle any disputes and would potentially prohibit Comcast from withholding NBC Universal content during negotiations - a practice that broadcasters have been increasingly turning to in the push for higher fees. Another Quote from a bloomberg article: Comcast also must sell programs to rivals, and allow competing programmers to reach its video subscribers, said officials at the Federal Communications Commission, which is reviewing the deal. Submitting to Arbitration Comcast may be required to submit to arbitration in disputes about its programming from its regional sports networks and NBC-owned TV stations, Arbogast and Kaut said. Such conditions could help rival video providers DirecTV, Dish Network Corp., AT&T Inc. and Verizon Communications Inc., Arbogast and Kaut said.
