§ 76.1501 Qualifications to be an open video system operator.
Any person may obtain a certification to operate an open video system
pursuant to Section 653(a)(1) of the Communications Act, 47 U.S.C.
573(a)(1), except that an operator of a cable system may not obtain
such certification within its cable service area unless it is subject
to “effective competition” as defined in Section 623(l)(1) of the
Communications Act, 47 U.S.C. 543(l)(1). The effective competition
requirement of the preceding sentence does not apply to a local
exchange carrier that is also a cable operator that seeks open video
system certification within its cable service area. A cable operator
that is not subject to effective competition within its cable service
area may file a petition with the Commission, seeking a finding that
particular circumstances exist that make it consistent with the public
interest, convenience, and necessity to allow the operator to convert
its cable system to an open video system. Nothing herein shall be
construed to affect the terms of any franchising agreement or other
