NAB is urging the FCC to finalize its service rules for satellite radio's terrestrial repeaters and prohibit the satellite companies from using any technology to permit delivery of content that would be aired on a receiver in one location that differs from content that would be aired on a receiver in a different location.
A coalition of licensees in the band adjacent to the repeaters has delayed building out advanced wireless services, due to concerns over interference from the repeaters, according to NAB.
NAB pushed the FCC to issue final rules in order to provide regulatory certainty for terrestrial broadcasters, as well as wireless licensees.
