SUPPLEMENTAL COMMENTS OF THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTERS, BEFORE THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION, DOCKET 16495.
IN TESTIMONY BEFORE THE FEDERAL COMMUNICATIONS COMMISSION ON ESTABLISHMENT OF DOMESTIC NONCOMMON CARRIER COMMUNICATION SATELLITE FACILITIES BY NONGOVERNMENTAL ENTITIES, THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTERS URGED CREATION OF A NATIONWIDE, NONPROFIT "SECOND SERVICE" SERVING AS AN ALTERNATIVE TO THE MAJOR COMMERCIAL NETWORKS. AS PROPOSED BY THE FORD FOUNDATION, THIS BROADCASTING SERVICE WOULD ENCOMPASS EDUCATIONAL TELEVISION (ETV) OPERATIONS, TOGETHER WITH OTHER FORMS OF TELECOMMUNICATION CAPABLE OF MAKING AVAILABLE ACCUMULATED DATA AND KNOWLEDGE, WHEREVER LOCATED, EITHER FOR INSTANTANEOUS USE OR FOR STORAGE AND RETRIEVAL. STRONG LOCAL STATIONS AND STRONG STATE AND REGIONAL GROUND-BASED NETWORKS WOULD BE ESSENTIAL TO THE SYSTEM. THIS SATELLITE-AIDED SYSTEM WOULD GREATLY REDUCE COSTS AND REVOLUTIONIZE ALL FORMS OF EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTING AND INFORMATION EXCHANGE, INCLUDING ETV VIDEO TAPE DISSEMINATION AND PUBLIC SCHOOL INSTRUCTION. DOCUMENT INCLUDES STATISTICS ON EXISTING AND ANTICIPATED ETV STATIONS IN THE UNITED STATES AND A SUMMARY OF THEIR PROJECTED (1966-71) OPERATING AND CAPITAL NEEDS. (THE NAEB JOURNAL IS PUBLISHED BI-MONTHLY BY THE NATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF EDUCATIONAL BROADCASTERS, URBANA, ILLINOIS.) THIS DOCUMENT WAS PUBLISHED IN "THE NAEB JOURNAL," JANUARY-FEBRUARY, 1967. (LY)
