Cutting Through Broadcaster Static: FCC Retrans Reply Comments to Emphasize Broad & Diverse Support for Reform of Outdated Rules

WASHINGTON D.C.  June 27, 2011 – In reply comments to be filed today in the FCC rulemaking docket, ATVA members will emphasize the broad and diverse support for changes to outdated retrans regulations.  Pay-TV providers, consumer groups, elected officials, sports fans and public interest groups across the political spectrum are all calling for reform, while broadcasters sit alone in the dark supporting the broken status quo.  With six retrans blackouts already this year, the FCC clearly must eliminate market-distorting rules and protect consumers.
