14:00 EDTCMCSAFCC fines Viacom, ESPN $1.4M after brodcasting EAS tones to promote movie
The Federal Communications Commission fined Viacom (VIA) and ESPN (DIS) $1.4M for misusing the Emergency Alert System warning tones. The cable networks transmitted EAS warning tones for several days in 2013 to promote the movie “Olympus Has Fallen,” which portrayed a terrorist attack on Washington, D.C. Broadcast or transmission of these tones outside an emergency or test violates the FCC’s laws protecting the integrity of the system. The networks admitted that the commercial contained actual EAS codes and appeared multiple times on the networks. In March 2014, the FCC proposed a total fine of $1,930,000 against NBCUniversal (CMCSA), ESPN, and Viacom. NBCUniversal paid its $530,000 fine, but ESPN and Viacom objected and requested reductions. The FCC rejected their arguments and imposed fines of $1,120,000 against Viacom and $280,000 against ESPN. The fines, which differ based on several factors including the number of channels involved and the number of transmissions on each channel, must be paid in 30 days.

06:24 EDTVZT-Mobile warns of unsustainable costs against cellphone giants, Re/code says
T-Mobile (TMUS) owner Deutsche Telekom (DTEGY) claims Verizon (VZ) and AT&T's (T) wealth makes true competition difficult, reports Re/code, citing statements made at Germany's DLD conference. Deutsche Telekom CEO Tim Hoettges stated the dominance of AT&T and Verizon allowed them to make huge bids at the latest midband spectrum auction to further their market lead. Hoettges also stated he was "intrigued" by last year's unsuccessful merger talks with Sprint (S), and warned that T-Mobile's $4B-$5B investment requirements per year are unsustainable. Reference Link

18:07 EDTVZ, CMCSACongressional GOP unveil net neutrality law to bypass FCC, LA Times reports
Representatives Fred Upton of Michigan and John Thune of South Dakota endorsed a congressional bill that would protect net-neutrality by banning internet service providers from charging companies extra to load their sites, and prohibit broadband companies from blocking legitimate websites, or slowing speeds for customers, superseding the FCC's authority to regulate the internet, according to the LA Times. Major internet companies such as AT&T (T) , Comcast (CMCSA), and Verizon Communications (VZ) have opposed a recent recommendation by FCC Chairman Thomas Wheeler to treat internet service similar to a utility.
