Re: [TV] A different NBC affiliate

my understanding (correct me if i am wrong) is that due to DMA rights Brighthouse in not allowed to retransmit any other markets local CH in a foreign market ( excluding things significantly viewed out of market channels). i am still not sure exactly how Brightouse has skirted the DMA rules to provided an NBC affiliate. i have theory that has to do with WBRE being a SV in PA) but i can bet that whatever loophole they found required it to be SV and while we have a few of them in FLA they they needed to find one willing to allow retransmission.

EDIT
all though i could be wrong because this theory doesn't take into account normally the SV's can only be carried in there designated SV markets and it dose not account for Syndication Exclusivity. HMM someone at Brighthouse had there thinking cap on,
