CEA Files Suit To Overturn FCC Tuner Ruling

10/17/2002 09:25:00 AM Eastern

Washington - The Consumer Electronics Association will take legal action to overturn the FCC's ruling that all TV sets including digital tuners.

The CEA, which unsuccessfully lobbied against the FCC making this decision, filed the suit on Oct. 11. The two-page filing states that the CEA views the mandate that all TVs 13-inches and larger include off air digital TV tuners by July 2007 as pointless since most consumer s rely on cable and satellite service to receive programming negating the need for the tuners. The CEA has estimated the tuners will cost increase a TV's cost by about $200.
