DirecTV, Dish Get FCC Concessions

Mar 20, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The Federal Communications Commission will extend by four years a deadline for U.S. satellite-television services DirecTV and Dish Networks to broadcast all local channels in high definition, Multichannel News reports. Dish and DirecTV will have until 2013, or four years after the U.S. converts all analog signals to digital, to ensure ubiquitous HD coverage for local markets, Multichannel News says.


  1. Got this in an email today!

  2. If Dish and DirecTV are smart, they won’t wait until that deadline. They’d better be ready for next year’s deadline or soon after, or it’s going to cost them. Their customers aren’t going to want to wait another 4 years.
