FCC to Propose Closing Loophole on Sports Programming

The Federal Communications Commission will consider an order to close to the so-called "terrestrial loophole," which allows cable companies to get around access requirements in a 1992 federal cable law by distributing programming over landlines rather than satellite connections.

Cable TV operators including Comcast Corp. and Cox Communications Inc. have relied on the loophole to deny programming to competitors such as DirecTV Inc., Echostar Corp.'s Dish Network and AT&T Inc. U-Verse video service.
