As we wrote on June 15, the FCC’s rules for leasing channels on cable television systems have never brought about an active leasing marketplace. The FCC is now taking another look at the situation, issuing a Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking in an old 2007 docket and inviting comments on whether to make adjustments in the existing rules or getting rid of the existing rules and rewriting the rules from scratch.

The FNPRM was published in today’s Federal Register, establishing a July 30 deadline for submitting comments with reply comments due Aug. 13.
