Beginning July 1, ABC, CBS, Fox and NBC, plus the top five cable networks will begin providing audio descriptions of some of their programming for blind or sight-impaired viewers. The shows to be described range from ABC’s Modern Family to CBS’s NCIS to Nickelodeon’s Dora the Explorer to USA’s Royal Pains. For now, stations in the top 25 markets and cable systems with 50,000 or more subs will be required to offer about four hours a week of the new service.
