SBCA Joins Digital Transition Coalition
Alexandria, VA--The Satellite Broadcasting and Communications Association (SBCA) has joined the Digital Transition Coalition. The Coalition was formed to help accelerate the transition to digital television in the United States. SBCA has been a long time supporter of the transition effort, arguing that the satellite industry should be allowed to provide high definition digital signals when they are unavailable by terrestrial broadcast.
"SBCA is proud to be part of the Digital Transition Coalition. In addition to encouraging others to speed their transition to digital, DBS should have the ability to serve digitally un-served consumers," said Richard DalBello, president, SBCA. "Since our launch in 1994, DBS has offered 100 percent digital quality programming to consumers—while our competitors continue to inch towards a format we’ve provided for 10 years, DBS has pushed towards new technology."
Members of the Digital Transition Coalition include Americans for Tax Reform, the Council for Citizens Against Government Waste, EchoStar Communications, Frontiers of Freedom, the Media Access Project, Public Knowledge, and the Small Business Survival Committee.

Eleven FCC Scenarios for The 600 MHz Band Plan
