The FCC has adopted an Order establishing electronic filing procedures for parties wishing to operate an Open Video System (OVS). Specifically, parties will now be able to submit a certification application and notice of intent electronically instead of through the current paper application and notice process, which includes paper Form 1275. An OVS is similar to a cable system, only the system operator must lease channel capacity to unaffiliated programmers at just, reasonable, and non-discriminatory rates. The change is part of the Commission’s Modernization of Media Regulations Initiative. The new e-file process will become effective after the Order is published in the Federal Register.
