Ask FCC to inform broadcasters ASAP about their incentive auction options
By John Eggerton -- Broadcasting & Cable, 10/3/2012 4:52:02 PM
The FCC released its incentive auction proposal this week, but it asks lots of questions and seeks comment on the answers it does propose.
In a letter to FCC Chairman Julius Genachowski, 16 House members from the state said that as the FCC does finalize its repacking plans, it disclose those at the "earliest opportunity" so stations can figure out how they will affect them.
They said the auctions are needed, but that over-the-air TV remains important, given that many of their constituents rely on it.
The commission has also gotten letters from the New Jersey and New York congressional delegations along the same lines: Spectrum auctions are needed, but so is a viable broadcasting business.
