After reading Mr. DogRadio’s TV concerns, I checked my recent copy of TV Technology from May 8 and saw a few references that might tie into to whatever he heard.
Nearing the close of the NAB Convention Mr. Chris Ornetas of NAB interviewed two FCC Commissioners before a room full of broadcasters, and although many subjects were discussed, they did mention a threat made by Mr. Chase Carey to change Fox TV into a cable network, which has many Fox Affiliates wondering what’s going to happen. No mention was made of other TV networks having similar ideas, but maybe they do. Both Commissioners said the FCC has no authority over what Fox decides to do.
They also remarked about the open proceedings on retransmission, which Mr. Dog Group mentioned above, but again commented that the FCC cannot dictate the outcome, that it was up to “market forces”.
Mention was made of the “TV spectrum auctions coming up in 2014.” That is probably a piece of the puzzle.
