In what it said was a highly unusual step, Comcast sent a letter to the Federal Communications Commission Tuesday seeking an “expedited full commission review” of the agency’s denial of the company’s waiver request for certain low-cost set-top boxes.
The country’s largest cable company requested that the FCC reverse the “fatally flawed” decision “with all due speed.”
The FCC’s Media Bureau Jan. 10 turned down Comcast’s waiver request to have three low-end digital set-tops exempt from the ban on set-tops with integrated security features, set to go into effect July 1.
