CenturyLink Applauds FCC Effort To Update Video Competition Rules
FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler recently proposed to update the video competition rules in an FCC blog post entitled “Tech Transitions, Video and the Future.”
As a relatively new entrant in the pay-TV market, CenturyLink applauds Chairman Wheeler for his effort to level the playing field for access to video programming for all video providers, regardless of their size or the technology they use. This is an important step in the right direction that will increase investment, innovation and competition in the video marketplace and ultimately benefit consumers.
Over the past five years, CenturyLink has begun offering video competition and programming options through the launch of its Prism™ IPTV service to approximately 2 million homes in a dozen markets and has invested hundreds of millions of dollars in deploying high-speed broadband services to support its digital video product.
