FCC Extends Comment Deadline: Rulemaking on Closed Captioning of IP-Delivered Video Programming

January 2014 — The Federal Communications Commission (FCC) released an Order in the Matter of Closed Captioning of Internet Protocol-Delivered Video Programming: Implementation of the Twenty-First Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act of 2010 [MB Docket No. 11-154]. The Order extends the comment deadline for the Further Notice of Proposed Rulemaking released on December 13, 2013, wherein the FCC requested comments on rules regarding the closed captioning of IP-delivered video programming.  While the initial comment dates were set for January 27, 2014 for comments and February 26, 2014 for reply comments, the FCC has agreed to extend the comment and reply comment deadline by one week following a request from the National Association of Broadcasters (NAB). In their request for an extension, NAB noted that they are currently working to draft comments for a similar docket regarding closed caption quality, “and that a one week extension of the video clips comment deadline would enable NAB and others to continue their collaborative work in that other docket and to more fully address the issues in the Video Clips Public Notice.”
