Why buy a car unless you are going to be driving out of town? That makes as much since.

The Federal Government at the behest of the National Association of Broadcasters says "Thou Shalt Not View out of market local channels".

 

So what's your problem, if the government says so it must be good - right?

 

TV station owners invest millions of dollars for a monopoly on your viewing and you don't like it, what's wrong with you?

Mostly the stations and the NAB saying NO and the government saying "we override their NO in these specific circumstances". The owners of a product have decided how they wish to distribute their product and the government is saying that it is too restrictive and providing exceptions to the owner's wishes.
