Free TV Coalition Says Broadcaster Broadband Could Deliver $400B To Treasury

Plan To Be Unveiled Oct. 20 At National Press Club

John Eggerton -- Multichannel News, 10/17/2011 2:40:00 PM



The Coalition for Free TV -- Sinclair is a driving force -- says it has a Broadcaster Broadband Plan it is pitching to Congress that will raise as much as $400 billion for the U.S. treasury in an ongoing annuity, as opposed to the one-time payment from a broadcast spectrum auction.
The coalition, whose members represent hundreds of TV stations, will unveil the plan Oct. 20 at the National Press Club.
That comes as the deficit-reduction supercommittee is being pushed to include broadcaster spectrum auctions as a way to raise $6 billion or so for deficit reduction by reclaiming spectrum from broadcasters to auction for wireless broadband. That figure is after broadcasters are compensated for giving up spectrum and some of the proceeds are used to build an interoperable broadband emergency communications network.

Unfortunately no one is interested in a better plan. Screw the American people. That is the plan!!!
That's about it. If you're a broadband or cable provider that could give the soon-to-be jobless FCC commish, you're on the FCC buddy list. If you're a broadcaster, you are the enemy.
