ViacomCBS and its Pluto TV have agreed to pay a $3.5 million fine to settle violations of rules requiring closed captioning on the streaming service’s video programming.
Pluto TV also agreed to enter into a compliance plan to ensure that its video programming includes closed captioning, the FCC said. The FCC said that the fine and consent decree was the first enforcement action related to closed captioning rules for the internet.
