Two upcoming hearings hosted by House Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) will discuss the future of video and the committee’s oversight of the Federal Communications Commission.? ?
Says Walden, “Since the passage of the 1992 Cable Act, there has been a sea change in the way that consumers gain access to video content. On June 27, the subcommittee will examine how advances in consumer electronics, broadcasting, cable, satellite, the Internet and other platforms are changing how consumers access video content, how those changes are impacted by existing regulations, and what type of regimes should apply going forward."
No panelists have been named. The Senate Commerce, Science and Transportation Committee held its own hearing on the future of video in April.
The FCC oversight hearing is set for July 10, with Walden adding, "This hearing will allow the subcommittee to hear from all five commissioners, including recently confirmed commissioners Jessica Rosenworcel and Ajit Pai, and to examine current proceedings before the FCC, the FCC’s regulatory process and the agency’s progress in implementing congressional priorities.”
The Senate Commerce Committee held its FCC oversight hearing last month.
