Summary
To further the longstanding U.S. media policy goal of localism, the current statutory framework for satellite and cable multichannel video programming distribution services distinguishes between the retransmission of local broadcast signals-the signals of stations located in the same local market as the subscriber-and of distant signals. Some statutory provisions block or restrict the retransmission of distant broadcast signals in order to protect local broadcasters from competition from those signals, with the intention of fostering local programming. At the same time, Congress has recognized the value of subscribers receiving certain distant signals-for example, if they are unable to receive broadcast network programming from a local station. Key copyright and retransmission provisions in the 2004 Satellite Home Viewer Extension and Reauthorization Act (SHVERA) that make it possible for satellite operators to provide their subscribers those distant broadcast signals expire on December 31, 2009. If these provisions are not reauthorized, satellite operators would no longer be able to provide most of those signals to their subscribers
