The Latest CableCARD Updates from the FCC

The FCC met today to discuss several items – among them, the fate of CableCARD technology. Here are the provisions adopted by the Commission specific to CableCARD devices. From today’s press release on “unleash(ing) video innovation and consumer choice,” the FCC is putting forth rules to:

  1. Ensure that retail devices have access to all video programming that is prescheduled by the programming provider
  2. Make CableCARD pricing and billing more transparent
  3. Streamline CableCARD installations
  4. Streamline requirements for manufacturers who build CableCARD devices

The history of the CableCARD has been a long, and somewhat sordid affair. You can find context with a Motorola perspective under the CableCARD category of posts on this site – from a review of theĀ original Seven-Oh-Seven mandate to more recent Motorola thoughts on how the FCC should handle CableCARD going forward.
