CRB Seeks Comment In ‘Distant Retrans’ MVPD Royalty Settlement


From the 1970s through the start of the 1990s, radio broadcast stations from a “distant” locale could be received via cable television systems. It’s how Ulster County, N.Y. FM radio listeners were able to receive New York City-based stations some 90 miles north of the Empire State Building.
