It's the "high definition" signal they are talking about, not the standard ones
No, it's not
. The FCC doesn't get involved in anything HD
related. They deal with analog vs digital only.
Here's the quote from the FCC, it's the HD signal like I said. They are talking about local broadcast "HD" signals!
While the item provides cable operators with flexibility, the FCC reaffirmed the requirement that cable systems must carry high definition (HD) broadcast signals in HD format and reaffirmed its current material degradation standard. Cable operators must carry broadcast signals so that the picture quality is at least as good as the quality of any other programming carried on the system.
