NAB Statement on Letter from Senators on Effective Competition in Pay-TV Markets

WASHINGTON, D.C. -- In response to a letter from several Democratic Senators to the FCC asking that the Commission preserve its rules regarding whether the pay-TV industry is "effectively competitive" in each market, the following statement can be attributed to NAB Executive Vice President of Communications Dennis Wharton:

"NAB is pleased that such a large number of influential Senators have joined nearly a dozen progressive advocacy groups to preserve effective competition rules for large cable operators. These rules are essential in ensuring that popular news, entertainment, and lifeline local TV programming will remain available on the basic tier of most cable systems at affordable rates."
