/// Hearing on Satellite TV Act Turns Into State of Video Hearing
A hearing yesterday on a 25-year-old law law governing whether or not satellite TV services can carry out-of-market signals quickly broadened into a discussion on the state of video. “I’m open to debate on a whole host of issues and options remain on the table,” said Rep. Greg Walden (R-Ore.), chairman of the subcommittee on communications and technology. What a difference a verb makes. With that single sentence, Walden turned the hearing, titled “The Satellite Television Law: Repeal, Reauthorize, or Revise?” into a state of video hearing. The hearing Wednesday was the second on STELA, the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act, which expires at the end of 2014 unless Congress extends it.
