Time Warner Cable chief calls Genachowski

Glenn Britt, the president and chief executive of Time Warner Cable, called Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Julius Genachowski on Thursday to discuss two issues: net neutrality and the reclassification of broadband services under Title II.

According to a disclosure form, Britt said his company is happy to work with stakeholders and the agency "to address any genuine policy concerns in a manner that preserves investment and innovation in the broadband arena."

Reclassification, a proposed FCC regulatory maneuver, could give the agency a better standing to police cable and phone companies.

He also noted that he supports "much-needed" reform of the retransmission consent system, which govern how cable companies negotiate with broadcasters when they play broadcast content. Cable operators say the rules give the broadcasters too much negotiating power.
