Broadcasting and Cable reported that Sens. Orrin Hatch and Patrick Leahy, which lead the Senate Judiciary Committee, may want to expedite authorization of the law limiting DBS delivery of network signals when Congress reconvenes next year.
The law allows DBS companies to deliver out-of-market distant network signals to viewers who can’t get a good signal from a local affiliate. The provision has been a point of contention between satellite TV companies and broadcasters.
The Senate will convene Tuesday, Jan. 20.
