FCC Releases Final Rules on Closed Captioning for IP-Delivered Video Programming

Davis Wright Tremaine LLP

This afternoon, the FCC released its long - anticipated Report and Order (R&O) setting forth the Commission’s new closed captioning rules for IP - delivered video programming, pursuant to the 21st Century Communications and Video Accessibility Act (CVAA).

As we explained when the rules were first proposed in September, the CVAA directed the FCC to establish how and when certain IP - delivered video programming must be captioned, as well as the closed captioning capabilities for devices used to view video programming.
