IPTV is a Cable Service

When the terms "IPTV" and "FTTH" began appearing in Colorado Springs, CO in early 2006, some people outside of the traditional cable world were claiming that delivering video via IP was not subject to the Cable Act and the local franchising authorities. I prepared a short memo arguing that indeed it was and should be subject to traditional cable franchise regulation. At the time, I was in-house counsel with Adelphia Communications. The memo was shared with city officials and advisory groups to ensure a couple of FTTH start-ups would be subject to the franchise rules (and they were). Ironically, I later became general counsel for one of them (PorchLight Communications).
