(a) Any provision that applies to a cable operator under
Secs. 76.1000 through 76.1003 shall also apply to a common carrier or
its affiliate that provides video programming by any means directly to
subscribers. Any such provision that applies to a satellite cable
programming vendor in which a cable operator has an attributable

satellite cable programming vendor (or its parent company).
(b) Sections 76.1002(c)(1) through (3) shall be applied to a common
carrier or its affiliate that provides video programming by any means
directly to subscribers in such a way that such common carrier or its
affiliate shall be generally restricted from entering into an exclusive
arrangement for satellite cable programming or satellite broadcast
programming with a satellite cable programming vendor in which a common
carrier or its affiliate has an attributable interest or a satellite
broadcast programming vendor in which a common carrier or its affiliate
has an attributable interest, unless the arrangement pertains to an area
served by a cable system as of October 5, 1992, and the Commission
determines in accordance with Section Sec. 76.1002(c)(4) that such
arrangment is in the public interest.
