Oct 20, 2008  •  Post A Comment

The Federal Communications Commission is reviewing a request from broadcasters that would put its report on unused digital airwaves, or white spaces, up for public comment before the panel votes on the issue Nov. 4, Broadcasting & Cable reports. “This proceeding has been open for several years and recently included multiple rounds of testing in the lab and field, which were open to the public and provided all interested parties with ample opportunities to comment and provide input,” said FCC spokesperson Robert Kenny in a statement. Last week the Big Four broadcast networks, the National Association of Broadcasters and the Association for Maximum Service Television filed an emergency petition calling for the vote to be delayed by 90 days.
