TVTechnology: Retransmission Overhaul Launched

WASHINGTON: A lot has changed since the last time legislators passed the laws governing TV providers. “My first TV, we got one channel,” said Texas Republican Joe Barton during a hearing on the future of video held today by the Energy and Commerce Subcommittee on Communications and Technology. Barton said he was the only one in 1980 to vote against the “re-regulation” of cable. “There are four or five companies at this table that did not exist then. I still don’t know what Roku is.”
