BROADCASTERS RESIST FCC RULES TO SPEED UP MOVE TO DIGITAL

By CBR Staff Writer

The television industry is showing signs of resistance to Federal Communications Commission rules that would mean they have to return their license to transmit analog signals by the year 2006. The FCC awarded broadcasters with a second signal license for digital transmissions earlier this year on condition that they return the analog licenses in nine years time, in an effort to speed up the transition process, but a proposed amendment to the rules would mean extended deadlines wherever more than 5% of households rely on analog broadcast signals rather than cable or satellite signals.
