Sen. Leahy: FCC Must Clarify Set-Top Proposal

Count Sen. Patrick Leahy (D-Vt.), ranking member of the Senate Judiciary Committee, among the fans of the FCC’s set-top box proposal but only if it protects MVPD content and contracts.

Leahy sent a letter to Wheeler this week (there were no co-signers), saying he supported the need for competition, though he characterized the proposal as “beginning a discussion of how best to [spur meaningful set-top competition] in today’s environment.”
