DirecTV Fights FCC Carriage Rule

Jun 5, 2008  •  Post A Comment

DirecTV is opposing a proposed regulation by the Federal Communications Commission that would require the company to provide duplicative carriage of digital TV stations signals in high-definition and standard-definition formats, Multichannel News reports. The satellite provider argued that the rule is an intrusion on its First Amendment rights and that subscribers could upgrade their set-top boxes if they wish to get HD service, the newspaper says.

  1. If you’re still on the fence: grab your favorite earphones, head down to a Best Buy and ask to plug them into a Zune then an iPod and see which one sounds better to you, and which interface makes you smile more. Then you’ll know which is right for you.
