Gemstar Withdraws FCC Petition:

April 12, 2001|Reuters

Gemstar-TV Guide International Inc. withdrew its petition to federal regulators asking that its on-screen program guide be carried on AOL Time Warner Inc.'s cable systems. Time Warner Cable temporarily stripped out the guide beginning in March 2000. Gemstar petitioned the FCC to force Time Warner to stop blocking the guide, which allows viewers to see descriptions and other information about upcoming television shows and movies. The agency has been reviewing the request for more than a year. Time Warner stopped blocking the program guide in June.
