Many camps, including NAB, have made reference to the failed Dish Network/DirecTV merger as evidence that the FCC would not approve a satellite radio deal.

Karmazin said this proposal is different.

In video, 90% of the population is getting their video from pay services, not over the air, he said. In this case, meaning radio, "90% are getting it free over-the-air." That's a restraint on satellite radio being able to raise prices - something he's confident the Justice Department would realize when looking at sat radio competitors, he said.
