                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: December 31, 2009

   By the District Director, New York Office, Northeast Region, Enforcement

    1. This is a Notice of Violation ("Notice") issued pursuant to Section
       1.89 of the Commission's Rules to Time Warner Entertainment Company LP
       ("Time Warner"), operator of a cable television system in Manhattan,
       New York. This Notice may be combined with a further action, if
       further action is warranted.

    2. On September 22, 2009, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected Time Warner's cable television system serving Manhattan, New
       York, and observed the following violation:

   47 C.F.R. S:11.61(b): "Entries shall be made in EAS Participant records,
   as specified in Sections 11.35(a) and 11.54(b)(13)."

   The agent found that entries were not made in the EAS logs to show
   required weekly EAS tests received from the primary source for the weeks
   of March 8, April 26, and May 31, 2009, and from the secondary source for
   the weeks of March 8, June 21, June 28, July 5, July 12, July 19, and July
   26, 2009. Entries were not made in the EAS logs to show required monthly
   EAS tests received and retransmitted from the secondary source for the
   months of July 2009 and August 2009. There were no entries in the station
   logs indicating the reasons why the required EAS tests were not received
   or transmitted.

    3. As the nation's emergency warning system, the Emergency Alert System
       is critical to public safety, and we recognize the vital role that
       broadcasters play in ensuring its success. The Commission takes
       seriously any violations of the Rules implementing the EAS and expects
       full compliance from its regulatees. Pursuant to Section 403 of the
       Communications Act of 1934, as amended, and Section 1.89 of the
       Commission's Rules, we seek additional information concerning the
       violation(s) and any remedial actions the station may have taken. 
       Therefore, Time Warner must submit a written statement concerning this
       matter within twenty (20) days of release of this Notice. The response
       (i) must fully explain each violation, including all relevant
       surrounding facts and circumstances, (ii) must contain a statement of
       the specific action(s) taken to correct each violation and preclude
       recurrence, and (iii) must include a time line for completion of any
       pending corrective action(s). The response must be complete in itself 
       and must not be abbreviated by reference to other communications or
       answers to other notices.

    4. In accordance with Section 1.16 of the Commission's Rules, we direct
       Time Warner to support its response to this Notice with an affidavit
       or declaration under penalty of perjury, signed and dated by an
       authorized officer of Time Warner with personal knowledge of the
       representations provided in Time Warner's response, verifying the
       truth and accuracy of the information therein, and confirming that all
       of the information requested by this Notice which is in the licensee's
       possession, custody, control, or knowledge has been produced. To
       knowingly and willfully make any false statement or conceal any
       material fact in reply to this Notice is punishable by fine or
       imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.

    5. All replies and documentation sent in response to this Notice should
       be marked with the File No. and NOV No. specified above, and mailed to
       the following address:

   Federal Communications Commission

   New York Office

   201 Varick Street, Suite 1151

   New York, NY 10014

    6. This Notice shall be sent to Time Warner at its address of record.

    7. The Privacy Act of 1974 requires that we advise you that the
       Commission will use all relevant material information before it,
       including any information disclosed in your reply, to determine what,
       if any, enforcement action is required to ensure compliance.
