Comcast filed its petition today, the first step in what is expected to be a lengthy appeals process in a discrimination case, the Los Angeles Times reports. It comes nearly a week after the Federal Communications Commission ruled that Comcast hurt Tennis Channel’s ability to compete by favoring two similar services that the cable company owns: Golf Channel and Versus (now known as the NBC Sports Network). Comcast was ordered to remedy the situation within 45 days. In its filing, Comcast asked the FCC to stay its decision so that the cable company would not be required to increase Tennis Channel circulation while Comcast takes its case to the federal appeals court in Washington, D.C. Comcast asked the FCC to rule on its petition by August 7th.
