Keep the Card - TiVo’s Quest to Ensure CableCARDs Remain Available at Retail

It has been 6 months since the Court of Appeals for the DC Circuit ruled the FCC lacked authority to impose encoding rules on satellite TV companies and other MVPDs to prevent signal theft. While the court case focused on satellite, the DC Circuit vacated the entire rule, including provisions that apply to cable operators. Enter TiVo. With the FCC having not stepped in to do anything since Jan’s ruling, the company now wants the rules reinstated, particularly when it comes to the provision that consumers must be able to access cable content on retail devices (like TiVo’s) via CableCARDs. More on TiVo’s position here.
