The Future of TV Coalition said that more than 70,000 Americans from all over the country have signed a series of petitions opposing the FCC's proposed set-top box mandate, arguing that the rules will "hamper innovation, erode viewer privacy, set back program diversity and drive up consumer bills."

The 72,621 individual signers voiced concerns about the new mandate's impact, specifically noting that the rules could mean higher bill costs, less privacy, more ads and fewer choices. Release
