Shentel Supports Retransmission Consent Reform In Representative Anna Eshoos Video CHOICE Act

Posted 12 December 2013 12:00 AM by Shentel

-     announces support of the Video CHOICE Act introduced today by Representative Anna Eshoo, Democrat of California  -

EDINBURG, Va., December 12, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Shenandoah Telecommunications Company (“Shentel”) (NASDAQ: SHEN) Chief Operating Officer Earle MacKenzie, an American Cable Association Board Member, issued the following statement in support of the Video CHOICE Act introduced today by Rep. Anna Eshoo, Democrat of California:

“Rep. Eshoo’s bill is great news because it would address significant problems within the retransmission consent market, which I described at length in recent testimony before the House Judiciary Committee.  It is time to overhaul the 1992 Cable Act because broadcasters should not be allowed to black out millions of innocent pay-TV consumers or charge excessive carriage fees to Shentel and other pay-TV providers for the right to retransmit ‘free’ TV signals.

“Shentel urges Congress to embrace with speed the reform proposals in Rep. Eshoo’s bill because retransmission consent reform is an issue that impacts every consumer that subscribes to a video package.”
