WASHINGTON, DC The House Subcommittee on Telecommunications and the Internet held a hearing today entitled Digital Future of the United States, Part 5: The Future of Video. While NAB did not provide oral testimony during this hearing, the association did submit a written statement.
In the seven-page statement, NAB said, "The future of video unquestionably includes free over-the-air television. The broadcast television industry has invested and continues to invest significant time, effort, and financial resources to complete the transition to digital broadcasting successfully, expeditiously, and in a consumer-friendly manner."
"Broadcasters are not satisfied to merely provide the best signal to your television, however," the statement said. "They are actively looking to extend their content to other devices, including cell phones, as well."
