Re: It's the revenue
9 out of 10 broadcast networks do NOT create the content except for the local "news". They license that content from the actual network who owns it.
The local broadcasters do NOT have to charge retransmission fees; they can force the providers to carry their channel; but yet REFUSE to because they wish to get the $$$$ for their "award winning news". MSOs need to tell those provides to *uck off and walk away. see how well they do then; or do pay them and move their channel up to a digital tier or out of the local broadcast. Due to once they require payment; they're not required to be on a local broadcast tier.
