FCC, Time Warner Settle NFL Network Spat

10/06/2006 8:47 AM Eastern

The Federal Communications Commission Friday ended its investigation into Time Warner Cable’s decision in August to drop NFL Network without providing appropriate notice to subscribers.

The FCC reached a consent decree in which Time Warner agreed that it violated an FCC rule that requires cable operators to provide customers 30 days’ notice before deleting a channel. The agency said it would take no action against Time Warner and close the investigation.

NFL Network complained to the FCC after Time Warner dropped the sports channel on some newly acquired systems from Comcast and Adelphia Communications.
