The Federal Communications Bar Association held a debate on the prime time access rule during its broadcasting/cable interface conference. The prime time access rule limits television network affiliates in the 50 biggest markets from accepting more than three and a half hours of network programming during prime time and prohibits them from showing non-network programming. Opponents of the rule claim it infringes upon the rights of network affiliates by mandating what they may telecast; supporters of the rule claim it benefits the public in allowing local programming on network stations. close
