Regulators voted to review their so-called “totality of the circumstances test” to determine whether station owners, cable and satellite operators are negotiating in good faith — something that Congress ordered the FCC to assess when there’s an impasse over retransmission consent terms. Last month Wheeler said that he would favor an order enabling a pay TV company to import a signal from an out-of-market station if a local broadcaster pulls its programming in a contract dispute.

I think it is time to even the playing field. Yes stations should be imported as long as the broadcaster play hostage with their signal. Overall it causes our rates to increase
