Public Broadcasting and Communication Satellites: A Report from the Corporation for Public Broadcasting.
Corporation for Public Broadcasting, New York, NY.
Because it is essential that, wherever applicable, new technologies be integrated with the developing public broadcasting system, the Corporation for Public Broadcasting is committed to a policy which will seek to have communication satellites utilized to the fullest for the benefit of all engaged in noncommercial broadcasting and communications. A number of issues which arise from this relationship should be addressed: the use of multiple channels and local autonomy, flexibility of regional configurations, growth and coverage, signal quality, cost, and reliability. The public has a real and direct interest in the potential cost-savings and flexibility inherent in satellite technology, and can now receive a partial return on their more than $25 billion investment in the space program in the form of first-class interconnection systems for public television and radio.
