Small MVPD In Retrans War With Broadcast Giant


The holiday cheer may soon to jeers for cable TV subscribers in a host of towns including St. George, Utah; Prineville, Oregon; and Mesquite, Nev.

While these locales may be small in size, over-the-air signals may not be present. This makes MVPDs essential for viewing network television affiliates from the nearest DMA. Should a dispute over retransmission fees erupt, the situation could put viewers at risk of losing their lone source for programming.

That’s not good for TDS,¬†or for the broadcast TV giant it is in¬†dispute with.
