FCC Examines Access Rules for Video Services in Apartments

The FCC is examining the need for new rules relating to the use of exclusive contracts for the provision of video services to multiple dwelling units (MDUs) or other real estate developments. The FCC said it is seeking to foster greater competition in the market for the delivery of multichannel video programming. Specifically, the FCC is seeking comment on:

  • the current environment for service providers attempting to obtain access to MDUs or other real estate developments, including the use of exclusive contracts.


  • the impact of exclusive contracts on consumer choice and video competition, and whether the use of exclusive contracts reduces the likelihood of competitive entry.


The FCC believes it has authority to regulate exclusive contracts for the provision of video services to MDUs or other real estate developments where it finds that such contracts may impede competition and impair deployment of those services.
