Summary

The Federal Communication Commission (FCC)'s new regulations for cable television permit cable systems to carry distant signals. However, the rules require that some distant programing be blacked out to protect programs under exclusive contract to local standard television stations. The purpose of this study was to show what effect these rules would actually have on programing. Program schedules of independent stations that might be carried as distant signals were compared with lists of programs that would have to be blacked out under the new rules. Because information could be obtained on only four stations--two network affiliates and two independents--on the programs they had under contract, it was necessary to "build up" estimates for different kinds of television markets from information on these four stations. The summary of the findings is that exclusivity provisions severely restrict distant signal carriage in markets where distant signals are not very important anyway--those with good over-the-air independent service. In markets where distant signals are important--those with little or no over-the-air independent service--the exclusivity provisions leave distant signals more or less intact. (JK)
