The FCC is exploring whether online video sites such as Hulu and YouTube (GOOG) should be governed by the same rules as traditional pay-TV providers. Any move in this direction could have huge implications, potentially giving video sites the right to carry channels content owners have been unwilling to license (and thus representing major new competition for traditional providers), while also requiring them to carry less popular content.

    Since when did the FCC have jurisdiction over the internet?

    "Communications" I guess. I don't know the parameters of the FCC. I do support anything that will improve the abilities for Internet companies and their streaming services. I got rid of cable service a long time ago. I use Netflix and YouTube extensively. I also use nfl.com and nba.com for sports streaming.

     

    Cable operators are EVIL!! And they don't get the market.
