<p>"The cable industry strongly supports the Telecommunications Ownership Diversification Act of 2003 and we look forward to working with Senator McCain and others to enact this much needed legislation.

Statement of Dan Brenner, NCTA SVP, Law & Regulatory Policy in Response to NAB Statement Regarding HD Super Bowl Carriage

<p>“Cable was pleased to make available this year’s Super Bowl in HDTV to millions of customers. We regret that many stations have rejected the guidance of FCC Chairman Powell, so that cable could regularly offer ABC HD broadcasts without charging an additional fee. Even more regrettable is the failure of other ABC stations, serving more than 30 percent of TV households, to offer any HDTV, months after an FCC deadline, so fans could view the game via an antenna.
