                              NOTICE OF VIOLATION

   Released: July 28, 2008

   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 Cablevision Systems Westchester
       Corporation ("Cablevision"), operator of a cable system in Yonkers,
       New York (Physical System ID 007341).

    2. On July 10, 2008, an agent of the Commission's New York Office
       inspected Cablevision's cable system serving Yonkers, New York, and
       observed following violations:

     a. 47 C.F.R. S: 11.61(b): "Entries [of EAS tests] shall be made in EAS
        Participant records as specified in S:S: 11.35(a) and 11.54(b)(13).
        S: 11.35(a) states "EAS Participants must determine the cause of any
        failure to receive the required tests or activations specified in S:
        11.61(a)(1) and (a)(2). Appropriate entries indicating reasons why
        any tests were not received must be made in . . . cable system
        records as specified in Sec. Sec. 76.1700, 76.1708, and 76.1711 of
        this chapter." During the inspection, the agent observed that for the
        months of April and June 2008, there were no entries in the EAS logs
        nor any EAS printouts of Required Monthly Tests received from station
        WFAS, one of Cablevision's two monitoring sources. There were no log
        entries indicating the reasons why these tests were not received.

     b. 47 C.F.R. S: 76.1702(a): "Every employment unit with six or more
        full-time employees shall maintain for public inspection a file
        containing copies of all EEO program annual reports filed with the
        Commission pursuant to Section 76.77 and the equal employment
        opportunity program information described in paragraph (b) of this
        section. These materials shall be placed in the unit's public
        inspection file annually by the date that the unit's EEO program
        annual report is due to be filed and shall be retained for a period
        of five years. The file shall be maintained at the central office and
        at every location with six or more full-time employees. . ." At the
        time of the inspection, the agent observed that Cablevision's public
        inspection file did not contain EEO program annual reports (Form
        396-C) for the years 2005, 2006 and 2007.

    3. Pursuant to Section 403 of the Communications Act of 1934, as amended,
       and Section 1.89 of the Commission's Rules, Cablevision must submit a
       written statement concerning this matter within twenty (20) days of
       release of this Notice. The response must fully explain each
       violation, must contain a statement of the specific action(s) taken to
       correct each violation and preclude recurrence, and should include a
       time line for completion of pending corrective action(s). The response
       must be complete in itself and signed by a principal or officer of
       Cablevision. 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

    4. This Notice shall be sent to Cablevision at its address of record.

    5. 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. Any false
       statement made knowingly and willfully in reply to this Notice is
       punishable by fine or imprisonment under Title 18 of the U.S. Code.
