They are granted virtually free use of spectrum, a protected market, even on MVPD systems, and the ability to collect subscriber fees from the MVPDs.

It's either/or: They can opt for mandatory retransmission, in which case they don't get paid, or they can choose to negotiate a retransmission fee, in which case, if the MVPD doesn't like it, they go off the that system (see CBS v. Time Warner Cable earlier this year).


You can UNSUBSCRIBE from the OpenDTV list in two ways:

- Using the UNSUBSCRIBE command in your user configuration settings at FreeLists.org
- By sending a message to: opendtv-request@xxxxxxxxxxxxx with the word
