DirecTV OK to Beam Locals
from the say-goodbye-to-rabbit-ears dept
This weekend the Senate passed and Clinton signed the Satellite Home Viewers Act, which allows DirecTV to broadcast “Locals into Locals” — local television stations will be beamed back into their local markets. This legislation set new records for constituent response for most lawmakers, leading one to believe you should never stand between voters and their televisions.
One hidden detail in this press release is that some markets will have to use an elliptical dish to get locals from the secondary DirecTV bird.
