The United States Supreme Court said today that it will not hear an appeal by Cablevision against the Federal Communications Commission’s requirement that cable companies carry all broadcast television stations. According to Reuters, Cablevision had argued that the FTC’s 1992 law should be repealed as a result of the “vigorous competition” in the cable industry. The court did not issue a comment on why it was siding with the FCC; other cable companies such as Time Warner had supported Cablevision’s stance.
