FCC reminds MVPDs of deadline to comply with second-screen accessibility

The Federal Communications Commission's Consumer and Governmental Affairs Bureau recently reminded multichannel video programming distributors of their upcoming obligation to pass through audible emergency information during linear programming on second-screen devices.

Providing emergency information aurally on the secondary audio steam allows blind or visually impaired viewers to access the same emergency information that is presented visually. The MVPDs have until July 10 to comply with the obligation.

The FCC also reminded manufacturers to provide a method that will easily activate the secondary stream, like an icon or a button.
