08.25-26.15 FCC Ex Parte-ATVA Meets with Commissioners Pai and Clyburn on retransmission consent rules, MB 10-71
Ex Parte Notice in MB Docket No. 10-71, Amendment of the Commission’s Rules Related to Retransmission Consent
ATVA members met with Commissioners Pai and Clyburn on August 25 and 26, respectively, at which time the members, including NTCA-The Rural Broadband Association, explained that reforming the Commission’s retransmission consent rules is more urgent now than ever. Local broadcast station blackouts continue to rise across the country, and retransmission consent rates continue to skyrocket, all to the detriment of consumers.
