Entertainment Review
This article focuses on the feasibility study by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) for television. Three separate petitioners are urging the FCC to sanction a change in this country's 34-year-old system of commercial broadcasting. Zenith Radio, the International Telemeter Corp.--controlled by Paramount Pictures--and an outfit with the chrome-tinged name of Skiatron TV each has its own method of garbling the picture, ungarbling it and collecting your fee. The FCC has other problems to mull over at this juncture in addition to the demise of one more obsolete industry.
