    The House on Wednesday approved key satellite TV legislation. The legislation allows the satellite companies to re-broadcast superstations and distant networks. Also, the House bill would allow satellite TV to broadcast certain "significantly viewed" channels from neighboring TV markets to areas served with satellite-delivered local TV packages.

    The more controversial part of the bill focused on a ban for the delivery of local TV signals to two dishes. Dish Network doesn't like it (big surprise), but DirecTV had nothing but good things to say. More HERE in our SHVIRA forum.

    New research suggests that 37 Million households will receive HD programming by 2006. More HERE.
