NABAccording to a report in Broadcasting & Cable, the National Association of Broadcasters filed comments with the FCC emphasizing the importance of allowing broadcasters to use available spectrum instead of turning it over for broadband use. Using “white spaces” for broadcast could help eliminate consumer disruption and expedite the transition to Next Gen TV, the NAB argued in the comments. “Encouraging stations to use vacant in-band channels, where available, is one of the most productive steps the Commission and broadcasters can take to minimize the potential for consumer disruption and help speed the transition,” NAB told the agency.
