FCC Closed Captioning Statement

The Federal Communications Commission requires closed captioning for the hearing impaired in virtually all new video programming for English-language programming. The FCC rules, however, temporarily exempt from this requirement programming supplied by a new video programming network during “the first four years after it begins operation.” 47 C.F.R. Section 79.1(d)(9).

The Bounce TV Network launched its new English-language service on September 26, 2011. Consequently, programming broadcast by the Bounce TV Network will be exempt from the FCC's closed captioning requirements until September 26, 2015.

For additional information on the FCC's requirements, visit the FCC Closed Captioning website: http://transition.fcc.gov/cgb/dro/caption.html
