/// House Subcommittee Sends Reauthorization of Satellite Bill to Full Committee
With a few tweaks, the House communications and technology subcommittee advanced a bill that reauthorizes the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act for five years. The bill now goes to the full House commerce committee. Reauthorization of the bill is vitally important to DirecTV, which still relies on the law to be able to deliver out of market network affiliated TV stations to 1.5 million of its subscribers. In addition, the bill has a few other goodies that both sides of the aisle have hammered out in two weeks since chairman Greg Walden (R-Ore.) introduced his draft and held a hearing on it .
