The Honorable Brad Sherman

U.S. House of Representatives

2242 Rayburn House Office Building

Washington, D.C. 20515

Dear Congressman Sherman:

Thank you again for apprising me of your strong desire for a swift resolution to the

ongoing dispute between Time Warner Cable (TWC) and other multi-channel video program

distributors (MVPDs) to ensure your consumers in the Los Angeles area can view and enjoy LA

Dodgers games.

As you mention in your letter, the Commission has requested information from TWC and

expects to receive that in the near term. Once received, Commission staff will carefully review

the response and determine whether -

and what -

further action is warranted. As we discussed

last week, it is my sincere desire that the parties will take the Commission's interest in the matter

as an impetus to work out their differences on their own to the benefit of consumers.

It was a pleasure to speak with you regarding this matter, and we will keep your office

informed if any additional Commission action occurs.



Tom Wheeler
