SILVER SPRING, Md./PRNewswire/—Robert L. Johnson, chairman of RLJ Entertainment and founder of Black Entertainment Television commends the Federal Communications Commission for voting favorably for a Notice of Proposed Rulemaking to unlock the set-top box.

This rule-making will give consumers the choice to purchase universal set-top devices that can combine traditional cable programming with streaming video content in an integrated user interface that puts all content on equal footing and brings an end to mandatory, expensive cable boxes.

“I applaud the Federal Communications Commission for today’s favorable rule-making. The universal set-top box, unlike the leased cable box, will increase consumer choice, save consumers billions of dollars from monthly lease bills, and can combine traditional cable programming with streaming video content that puts content on an equal footing,” Johnson said.
