FCC Rule Changes May End Funding for Community Media!

We Need Your Help

The Federal Communications Commission is considering rule changes that would allow cable operators to treat funding for cable-related costs as “in-kind” donations. This means they would deduct an undefined amount from monies that traditionally have gone to community media.

MassAccess has hired the Cohen Law Group to help us file opposition to the proposed rule-making. Read their summary HERE.

We Need the FCC to Recognize the Value of Community Media

MassAccess will be filing opposition on behalf of its members, but we urge you to file opposition as well. Whether you are a station, an issuing authority, a community media user, or viewer/supporter; all comments need to be filed with the FCC BEFORE NOVEMBER 14, 2018!

Please choose an option below for templates or instructions:

No Amount is Too Small

Besides filing, please consider making a donation to MassAccess’ legal fund. This unforeseen but critical process may well decide the future of community media not only in Massachusetts, but across the country. Please consider a donation, no matter how small.
