Portions of this Public Notice have been produced by the Media Bureau’s computer-based Data Management systems.
This Public Notice is intended to list only special relief requests, petitions for order to show cause and related petitions for reconsideration
or applications for review. CSR (cable special relief) petitions and CSC (cable show cause) petitions refer to cable-related matters pursuant
to Part 76. The newly-designated BSR (broadcast special relief) petitions refer to certain non-application-related broadcast matters pursuant
to Part 73.
Parties seeking special relief pursuant to Part 76 are advised that such requests must be initiated through the special relief provisions of
Section 76.7 of the Rules. Many of these filings are subject to the pleading cycle rules set forth in Section 76.7, while others have their
own pleading cycle relative to the particular rule involved. For BSR petitions filed pursuant to Part 73, the pleading cycle
will be the same as that mandated by Section 76.7 unless stated otherwise.
Please note that petitions for reconsideration and applications for review are listed for informational purposes only. The applicable pleading cycles for
these types of petitions are found in Sections 1.106 and 1.115 of the Commission’s rules, respectively.
Files containing these petitions can be reviewed in the Commissions Reference Information Center, CY-Level, 445 12th Street, SW Washington, DC
20554. The letter code following a CSR Number refers to the particular subject of the petition. Those currently in use are: A – ADI/DMA; M – must
carry; E – effective competition; C – retransmission consent; P – program access; R – rate regulation; F – rate freeze; L – commercial leased access;
Z – technical; S – significantly viewed; N – nonduplication/syndicated exclusivity/sports deletion; D – small system definition; O – otard; and X – cross
ownership. If no letter appears after the CSR number, the petition is considered to be in the miscellaneous category. CSC and BSR petitions do not
have letter code designations.
It is requested that all responses or statements refer to the CSR file number assigned to the petition.
