NAB Hosting Hill Meetings On Broadband/Broadcast Coexistence

The National Association of Broadcasters is hosting congressional staffers for a tutorial on broadband/broadcast co-existence and the continued value of the over-the-air medium.

NAB spokesman Dennis Wharton said the tutorial will feature Covington & Blake lawyer Jonathan Blake; Open Mobile Video Coalition Executive director Anne Schelle, and NAB Senior VP, Science and Technology, Lynn Claudy. The coalition is an alliance of TV stations, promoting the deployment of mobile DTV. Broadcasters are under pressure to give up as much as 120 Mhz of spectrum so it can be auctioned for wireless broadband in service of an exploding number of apps. That spectrum reclamation was part of the FCC's National Broadband Plan to boost broadband deployment and adoption.
