The article focuses on the renewal of the Satellite Home Viewer Extension and Reauthorization Act in the U.S. It contains a compulsory license that allows satellite broadcasters to retransmit local broadcast signals without having to negotiate copyright deals. The license for cable and direct broadcast satellite (DBS) does not consider the shift to digital high definition television (HDTV) or delivery of TV program over the Internet. They oppose changes to the way statutory rates are calculated.
