Under the new Presidential administration, the ACA is looking forward to rolling back a lot of burdensome regulations on small pay-TV/ broadband providers, including: Title II classification, broadband privacy regulations, and enhanced transparency regulations. And Polka can always hope for some retransmission consent relief. Meanwhile, Powell continues to represent the communications and content industries, as he leads one of the largest trade associations in D.C. He’s also guiding the industry through the changing landscape, with NCTA scrapping its annual trade show after 65 years and adding “The Internet & Television Association” to its moniker. All part of adapting to these modern times.
