Section 1003 of the recently adopted Television Viewer Protection Act directs
the FCC to adopt rules that, in its words, “provide for negotiation of retransmission consent between ‘qualified multichannel video programming distributor [MVPD] buying group[s]’ and ‘large [broadcast] station group[s].'”
How should the Commission define “large station group” or “qualified MVPD buying group”?
That’s largely been left up to the public to decide.
