House Panel Passes Satellite TV Bill

September 18, 2009


WASHINGTON: The House Judiciary Committee today unanimously approved the Satellite Home Viewer Update and Reauthorization Act of 2009. The bill, H.R. 3570, [PDF] extends the previous iteration of the legislation by five years, allowing pay TV providers limited access to broadcast signals outside of a station’s given market.

Dow Jones reported. Lawmakers said future carriage rights should be negotiated in a free market.

Likewise legislation must be approved by the House Energy and Commerce Committee before it gets put to a floor vote.
