The three key reforms proposed in Cablevision's filing were:
- Forbid tying: End the practice of requiring the carriage of unrelated cable channels, owned by broadcasters, in order to also carry their broadcast networks.
- Require transparency: End the practice of allowing broadcasters to keep their prices for carrying broadcast stations secret. Retransmission fees should be public.
- Forbid discrimination: Allow broadcasters to continue to set the price of carriage, but do not allow them to discriminate among cable and satellite providers based on size or other factors.
