The National Association of Broadcasters is coming out against the renewal of the Satellite Television Extension and Localism Act Reauthorization Act, which was passed in 2014 and permits the import of distant network TV signals. "The time has come to stop subsidizing billion-dollar satellite TV companies and to instead provide viewers with the local news, weather and emergency information they want and need. Congress should let STELAR expire," NAB says.
