Unlicensed Devices Could Jeopardize Successful Digital TV Transition

WASHINGTON, DC – NAB and the Association for Maximum Service Television (MSTV) sent a letter today to all 535 members of Congress, urging lawmakers to oppose opening broadcast spectrum to portable unlicensed devices.

Referencing a coalition of technology companies, which include Microsoft, Dell, Intel and Google, NAB President and CEO David K. Rehr and MSTV President David Donovan explained, "Unfortunately, the White Spaces Coalition is asking Members of Congress and the FCC to pursue a policy that could jeopardize the success of the the impending DTV transition."
