Good question.

New FCC rule could hurt local access TV

By John Flowers



MIDDLEBURY — Managers of Vermont’s cable access channels are warning that a new rule being pitched by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) could significantly affect their revenues to a point where some stations might have to pare back services significantly, or even close down.

By Andy Kirkaldy
