MORE FULL POWER TV STATION REGULATORY RELIEF NEEDED?
> "...possible regulatory uncertainty created when broadcasters seeking to maintain as much of their existing programming-including multicast streams-transmit multicast channels via a facility not identified on the 3.0 license of an originating station."
> "...the Commission might not retain enforcement authority over a station that originated programming if that station was transmitting additional multicast streams over a facility not reflected on the ATSC 3.0 license of the originating station,"
> possible solution, the parties recommended broadcasters include an attachment to their 3.0 license application with information spelling out additional channels they plan to use to maintain programming during the transition and that the FCC note the additional channels on the face of a station's 3.0 license.
> Doing so would "preserve clear lines of Commission enforcement authority without requiring changes to the existing application forms," the letter said.
