Verizon Applauds FCC Video Programming Ruling

Verizon applauded the new FCC video distribution decision.

"This is a big-time victory for television sports fans. The FCC's decision to make must-see regional sports programming, including high-definition feeds, presumptively available to competitors, puts viewers in the driver's seat. This ruling means that consumers will no longer have to stick with their incumbent cable provider in order to watch local teams in high definition," stated Kathleen Grillo, Verizon senior vice president of Federal Regulatory Affairs.
