WASHINGTON, DC -- In response to the announcement by FCC Chairman Tom Wheeler that he is circulating a rulemaking proposal regarding over-the-top video providers' access to programming, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:
"NAB welcomes video distribution platforms that legally deliver local TV content to consumers when and where they want it. We look forward to engaging with the FCC to ensure that this new competition enhances rather than undermines localism."
