Public Interest Aspects of Cable Television Interconnection by Satellite.
Wells, Daniel R.
The interconnection between satellite and cable television systems would have the greatest potential effect on education. Because cable offers per pupil cost saving by the centralization of resources, the advantage of simultaneous programing, and the potential of two way systems (particularly useful in computer-assisted instruction), its link with satellite systems would broaden the national and regional input to the interconnection system. Though the regulatory problems of such a system have been largely solved, and technically the system is feasible, cost prohibitions (particularly the high cost of terrestrial facilities) prevent a concentrated effort to effect the system. The author concludes that public policy should be particularly sensitive. (MC)
