As we reported the day before Thanksgiving, the Commission – acting at Congress’s direction – adopted a number of changes in its rules relating to satellite carriage of broadcast programming. The changes relating to carriage of “significantly viewed” stations have now made it into the Federal Register, which means that those rules are slated to become effective on December 29, 2010. Effective dates for the other recent STELA-induced changes haven’t been set yet – check back here for updates.
