Captioning IP-delivered Programming Rules: Interactive Flowchart


On January 13, 2012, the FCC released a Report and Order (R&O) which set new requirements for Internet Protocol (IP)-delivered programming. The R&O was published in the Federal Register on March 30, 2012, thus launching the compliance dates.

The original document is 111 pages and covers the rules, terms, and deadlines in great detail. Don’t have time to read the entire report?

No worries! We designed a simple interactive flowchart to help!

Find out if (and when) your IP-delivered program is required to have captioning by answering simple “yes” and “no” questions. If you have any questions, contact us at
