Future mobile and multi-device video viewing innovations should not be subject to a host of technical government rules. Nor should such advances require waivers. Unfortunately, the FCC is spending time tinkering with outdated rules when it should be charting a deregulatory course to match today’s dynamic broadband-enabled market conditions. In a video market characterized by change and choice, consumers should decide what services and devices receive approval or disapproval. The FCC should sunset set top box regulations rather than hamper the video device market’s future with heavier sets of controls. And Congress should carefully consider adopting H.R. 3196.
