GOOD NEWS !!!Implementation Schedule for Captioning Internet Video Programming
The following deadlines apply to video programming that a distributor shows
for the first time on the Internet (newly added to the distributor’s
inventory of Internet video programming):
* September 30, 2012: Pre-recorded video programming that is not
“edited for the Internet” must be captioned on the Internet if it is shown
on TV with captions on or after September 30, 2012. “Edited for the
Internet” means the TV version has been substantially edited. Examples of
editing for this purpose are: deleting scenes or altering musical scores.
Changing the number or duration of commercials is not considered “editing”
for this purpose.
* March 30, 2013: Live and near-live video programming must be
captioned on the Internet if it is shown on TV with captions on or after
March 30, 2013. Near-live video programming is defined as programming that
is performed and recorded less than 24 hours before being shown on TV for
the first time.
* September 30, 2013: Pre-recorded video programming that is
substantially edited for the Internet must be captioned if it is shown on TV
with captions on or after September 30, 2013.
