Senate Commerce Committee Chairman Jay Rockefeller (D-W. Va.) is unveiling a video reform bill Nov. 12 that would allow online video distributors to elect the same rights to access to programming and protections afforded satellite providers in the 1992 Cable Act, when Congress was trying to boost satellite MVPD competition, and at least some of the responsibilities as well.
