Less dramatic than CablevisionFox but still interesting is a recent retrans filing from Time Warner Cable at the FCC. The MSO said the Commission should block or attach significant retrans conditions to LIN TV‘s purchase of Acme Comm‘s WCWF-TV in Suring, WI, as well as Vaughn Media‘s purchase of Acme’s WBDT in Springfield, OH (LIN would manage it under a joint sales agreement). TWC says the deals would allow LIN to negotiate retrans consent for multiple stations in the same DMA. If the FCC allows the sales, the MSO wants conditions preventing signals from being pulled during spats and an arbitration requirement?the same changes TWC and others want to retrans rules overall. ? The FCC‘s Office of Managing Director is accepting donations for the Commission’s new Technology Experience Center, on-site tech lab that will provide FCC employees and invited guests the opportunity to experience the latest communications devices and solutions.
