inability to provide closed captioning.5 Petitioners were alerted that if they did not file a new petition, they
would be required to begin captioning their programs after the 90 day period expired. Thereafter, CGB sent
letters to each of the 298 petitioners, via certified mail, return receipt requested, notifying each of the need to
either file a new petition by January 18, 2012, if it wished to continue to receive a captioning exemption, or to
begin captioning its program on January 19, 2012, the day after the dismissal of its original petition.6
The petitioners listed in this Public Notice did not file a new petition by January 18, 2012, and
therefore were required to begin captioning their programs as of January 19, 2012.' To the extent that any
petitioner listed herein filed a new petition after January 18, 2012. such petition is considered pending before
the Commission as of the date it was received at the Commission. However, if the programming that is the
subject of such petition aired without captions after January 18, 2012, the video programming distributor that
aired such programming may be in violation of the Commission's closed captioning rules from that date up
until the time that the new petition was submitted.8
