DirecTV Disses Broadcasters
 
DirecTV says it is time for Congress to step in and either "jettison broadcast regulations altogether"--that would include must-carry/retrans--or make the laws "smarter to reflect the marketplace.
 
That is according to the prepared testimony of Michael Palkovic, EVP at DirecTV for Wednesday's House Communications Subcommittee hearing on reauthorizing STELA, the law that grants a compulsory license for satellite operators to import out-of-market distant affiliated TV station signals.
