Chairs Rodgers and Latta Announce Subcommittee Hearing on the Evolution of America’s Video Marketplace
Washington, D.C. — House Energy and Commerce Committee Chair Cathy McMorris Rodgers (R-WA) and Communications and Technology Subcommittee Chair Bob Latta (R-OH) today announced a hearing titled “Lights, Camera, Subscriptions: Assessing the State of the Video Marketplace.”
The Chairs released the following statement:
“Over the last decade, the video marketplace has undergone a transformative shift as more media content moves online. The introduction of streaming services expanded the options for consumers to choose where, when, and what content they view. While there is an unprecedented amount of content, like movies, TV shows, and news, available, the rise of these services creates challenges for traditional media providers who continue to compete despite being saddled with regulations. We look forward to discussing the evolution of this market, the steps Congress can take to ensure outdated regulations do not hinder innovation and competition, as well as how to bring the traditional marketplace into the 21st century.”
Subcommittee on Communications and Technology hearing titled: “Lights, Camera, Subscriptions: Assessing the State of the Video Marketplace.”
