DEADLINE EXTENDED FOR COMMENT ON MEDIA BUREAU PUBLIC NOTICE ON

APPLICATION OF THE IP CLOSED CAPTIONING RULES TO VIDEO CLIPS

MB Docket No. 11-154

Extended Comment Deadline: February 3, 2014
Extended Reply Comment Deadline: March 5, 2014

1.
By this Public Notice, the Media Bureau extends the deadlines for filing comments and
reply comments in the above-captioned proceeding. On December 13, 2013, the Media Bureau released a
Public Notice seeking updated information on the closed captioning of video clips delivered by Internet
protocol (“IP”), including the extent to which industry has voluntarily captioned IP-delivered video clips.1
The Video Clips PN established a comment deadline of January 27, 2014 and a reply comment deadline
of February 26, 2014. On January 17, 2014, the National Association of Broadcasters (“NAB”) requested
a one week extension of the comment deadline.2 NAB explained that it is “currently working diligently
on a sister docket” regarding the closely related subject matter of closed captioning quality, and that a one
week extension of the video clips comment deadline would enable NAB and others “to continue their
collaborative work” in that other docket and to more fully address the issues in the Video Clips PN. We
grant NAB’s request.
2.
As set forth in Section 1.46(a) of the Commission’s Rules,3 the Commission’s policy is
that extensions of time shall not be routinely granted. Given the closely related subject matter of the two
pending proceedings, however, we believe that granting NAB’s request is necessary to facilitate the
development of a full record. Accordingly, we extend the comment deadline by one week, until February
3, 2014. To ensure that interested parties have sufficient time to respond fully to the comments, on our
own motion we also extend the reply comment deadline by one week, until March 5, 2014.

Wise, (202) 418-8165.
